Cute Knitted Pumpkins

Aside from Summer, Fall has to be my most favorite season of the year. I love the crisp air, Football, the leaves, the wardrobe (hello, sweater weather!) and most of all, the knits that come with it. Take this little guy….I made this pumpkin on my Singer toy knitting machine that I got last year…

A Good Use For Speckled Yarn
