A Pumpkin Patch of Crochet Patterns

12 Oct

Happy October everyone!

 

Well, my favorite season/time of year is finally here, and it seems to be flying by pretty quickly.  I love having all 4 seasons here in New England, but from autumn through Christmas is most definitely my favorite time.

 

Before I move on to the patterns I have for you today…and yes I said patterns…I have 2 for you this month. :)  I’d like to say that 22 years ago today our son was born…so a very happy birthday to him!

 

Also, today is the second annual “I Love Yarn Day”…so all us yarn lover’s…there is a day just for us.  And I think we should most definitely celebrate! ;D  Now how to do that exactly…maybe buy some more yarn? Hahahaha  Or maybe we can share some of our yarn stash with a fellow yarn lover….or maybe just curl up with our yarn and hooks and/or needles and just work our little hearts out on a project that needs some attention???  In any case…the possibilities are surely out there  so enjoy this “I Love Yarn Day”. ;D

 

Okay, back to the patterns I have for you this month.  Whether you like Halloween or not, you can’t deny that pumpkins are just too cute not to have around.  I created a few pumpkin patterns a couple of years ago, and I thought I’d share 2 of them with you.  I decided to do 2, because I know some of you like smaller, quicker projects to do…so you’ll find one of those after the first pattern I have for you.
