It’s the Crochet Pumpkin

Okay, last post I showed you what I had accomplished in crocheting thus far.

I’ve been practicing the basic crocheting technique: Single crochet.  I wanted to make sure I was really comfortable with this step before I tried anything else.

My first project was making a pair of bracers, because I’ve always wanted some.

I might try and put more of a design on them, but for now, this is what they look like.

And here’s something I made last night.  Just a little bracelet to show off my Irish colours.

On Monday, I looked up a video on Youtube for crocheting balls.  It was very helpful.

After the first three tries—id est, after failing three times because my concentration often wanders…what were we talking about?… —I finally managed to finish what I started.

But before I show you the finished ball, here is something I made to practice the first couple of steps.

It’s about the same size as the bell I made last time.

And finally, here is the ball! (now known as, the Pumpkin)

As you can see, the bottom of my pumpkin is a little loose, but regardless, I’m pleased with how it turned out.

The yarn is from Knit picks.  I bought it awhile ago because I thought it was pretty, and it was on sale.  The colour name is—what else—Pumpkin.

(Here’s a size comparison for you…

If you don’t know this little sneak, he’s 3 1/2″.)
