A pumpkin treat bowl...

Another busy week and not much crocheting to show, but yesterday I whipped up this little pumpkin treat bowl as part of a CAL on Ravelry. 

It's a simple pattern, but my pumpkin didn't come out perfectly round.  I noticed that around row 5 or so I was off a stitch and tried several times to redo it and fix the problem.  But I wasn't able to see where I might be going wrong. Frankly, I wasn't sure I was doing anything wrong and I finally decided I wasn't going to fuss with it anymore.  And then the lid didn't fit like I wanted, so I adapted it - and I adapted the leaf (check out my project notes if you're curious about any modifications I made.)  While this little pumpkin bowl wasn't difficult, wasn't my favorite thing to crochet.

In the end, though, it's kind of cute.  And it fits my category of something whimsical (in my YOP list), so I'm going to be happy with it, knowing pumpkins (real or not) have a short shelf-life here and it will be packed away with other fall décor before the snows fly (hopefully, long before).  For Wednesday's Yarn Along I plan to show my favorite crocheted pumpkins.  These are easy peasy and come out right every time.  Come back and see!

  1. How cute is that little pumpkin and quick projects are so satisfactory

  2. I love the pumpkin and the fact that it is not perfect adds to its charm.

  3. It is cute and cheery. You know I tried Pumpkin Pie for the first time just today! It's okay. I'm told it's meant to have whipped cream which I didn't know. Overall I'd rather have an apple pie!

  4. Awww, what a cute little pumpkin! Everyone seems to be knitting seasonal things and I'm fighting the urge to add more to my already unmanageable to-do list and do the same!! :)

  5. I think you pumpkin is adorable--I adore Fall decorations.
