Crocheting hasn’t been too bad but I surely like knitting better. I have made three pumpkins so far and have a fourth started. I think the fourth one is going to sit for a while so I can knit a couple. I’ll be interested to see how much yarn the knitted version takes because the crochet versions all used between 100 and 106 grams and I feel like I can knit the same size pumpkin in about half the time the crochet version took . . but I could be wrong. Of course, I knit almost non-stop and have for years where crochet is not something I do much . . like once every 20 years!
Addie wanted me to make one for her teacher and she went through several skeins of Cascade 220 I had just received and she chose the pink, which is crab apple. I loved that color! It’s a rosy, almost clay colored pink. The gray one is for a friend I’ll see tomorrow.
This one is also Cascade 220 and the color is Lilac Mist. I just now finished this one. I really don’t like gluing the stems in there. The pattern calls for quick drying glue, which I don’t have and am not going out to get. I had to finish the one Addie wanted to take so I used some glue I had here and it isn’t good for this project at all but since the other two were so close to being finished, I used it on them too.
The knitted version won’t need glue but I still have the fourth Cascade 220 crocheted version to finish so I’ll go ahead and use the glue I have here and be doe with it.
It’s quiet with Addie gone. Chad and Nicole helped bring all the empty boxes from downstairs and stack them in the garage. I break them all down and I can carry six boxes up at a time but I usually have other things to carry up so the boxes end up stacking up. Nice to have them out of the basement. I think I might go down and unpaid two or three boxes this evening . . not 10, and if I feel like I’m overdoing it, I’ll stop but . . seriously . . two or three boxes. I’ll be fine.
