Pumkin Monsters

It is the pumkin season so I made some pumkin Characters for my Grandchildern.

I used my LK-150 knitting machine and a G crochet hook. I cast on 41 stitches, and knit 30 rows. I converted every 5 stitch.

Arms and legs- Cast on 4 stitches and Cord 40 rows.

Top- Cast on 6 stitches and Cord 5 rows.

I crocheted each three triangles for the eyes and nose-

Eyes- chain 5, turn, single stitch 2 together, single in the next two. Turn and single crochet the next two together, and single in the next one, turn. Single crochet the next two stitches together and fasten off. Leave long enough yarn for sewing on.

Nose- chain 4, turn single stitch 2 together, single in the next one. Turn and single crochet the next two stitches together and fasten off, leaving long enough yarn for sewing on.

Mouth- Chain 10, skip one chain, slip stitch in the next three, chain three, and slip stitch in the same stitch. Slip stitch in the next three, chain three, and slip stitch in the same stitch. Slip stitch in the next three. Fasten off and leave long enough yarn for sewing on.

Sew the pumkin together, pull legs through where you want them. Sew on mouth and nose. Start stuffing , pull arms through where you want them, sew on eyes, finish stuffing. Close top and add the top, you might want to add a little stuffing to the top.

I am going to make some miniature furniture, and Barbie size furniture. I am going to use the same pattern but, different yarns and needle sizes.

I am going to make some bookmarks: Crosses, bookworms, and maybe some others.

Scarves, mittens, fingerless gloves, hats, slippers, all those quick and satisfying items.

Maybe a few decorative items. We will see.

That doesn't sound like much, but I have a large family, so I will have to make quite a few of each.

Now to choose the yarns..............................

One day we had rainbows and 2 days later it was snow. This is what it looked like on Monday morning after Sunday's snow fall.
Today is nice and sunny with 56 degrees. Also Spring Break has started for the Kids today.
Every one have a Happy Easter!

We had a nasty rain come through the other day and left us with this beautiful rainbow. We could see both ends of it. Isn't God good and doesn't he keep his promises.

New kind of Sponges

These are made out of Suger and Creame Cotton crochet. I made then using the "Magic Square" pattern . As you can see I did not turn them Diagonally. When they were as wide as I wanted them I whip stitched them together.

Filet Crochet

Originally uploaded by knitcroweave10
This is my Filet Crochet Heart I made for my kitchen window. Made it out of Sugar and Creame Cotton. Didn't have enough any one color, so as you see I used all three. The pattern is from Stitch Collection Filet Crocht by Betty Barnden., It is called Two Hearts on page 38. I believe I used an I hook.
I think it came out ok since it was an experiment. With it being red, white, and blue I can use it for the 4th of July.LOL
