I can’t pass up a challenge so when Eat, Sleep, Knit posted the Pumpkin Flash Knit Along (FKAL) last week, I jumped on it. Addie was here and helped pick out the colors so don’t blame me for the weird pumpkin colors.
The above two, as well as the one below were crocheted.
The straw colored one below was also crocheted and the two orange, teal and one more crab apple were knitted.
I think the crocheted ones look more like pumpkins. My knitted ones look more like bell peppers!
They’re done and that’s what matters!
The crochet took a lot longer than the knitting. The crocheted pumpkins are about 100 yards each and the knitted ones are about 65 yards each and the crocheted ones are just heavier and hold their shape better. I’ll never (I know – never say never) like crochet better than knitting but I did enjoy crocheting the four pumpkins. But, I’m also glad to have them done.
