I wanted to be crafty and decorate our apartment for fall. It all started when I wanted to carve a pumpkin. When I realized that I would have to pay more than a dollar for a pumpkin, I decided I wanted to knit one instead. I went on Ravelry and found patterns for pumpkins, leaves, and acorns.
I didn't start until halfway through October, so I was finishing my pumpkin on halloween. I made leaves in four different colors and two acorns. I crocheted a chain to hang them from and put it up in a doorway. The bright fall colors make me happy. Sometimes it's nice to take a break from big projects and knit something small.
