Here is my first pumpkin in the Itsy Bitsy Spider Crochet-a-long. I chose to do a white pumpkin since I had noticed white pumpkins before at the pumpkin patch we visit each year. I always wondered if anyone ever chose a white pumpkin. Orange pumpkins still rule in my book. Of course, orange is my favorite color not to disrespect the white pumpkin.
I’ve joined a crochet-a-long for a pumpkin. I have made some pumpkins in the past but never really liked them. So I thought I would give it another try when I found this CAL. It’s really a cute pattern and cannot wait to get started. I’m still working on a few pteranodons and a few Christmas projects. I think the pumpkin will be a nice break. In fact, I may make several. We planted some pumpkins but not sure they will be ready by October or even make for that matter. Anyway these pumpkins will be a lot cuter than real ones.
You can go to Itsy Bitsy’s Spider’s blog to sign up for the CAL through September 10th. You can still join afterwards but you will need to buy the pattern from Ravelry for $1.
I’m so excited to be taking part in my first ever Crochet a-long. It’s being hosted by PlanetJune and features two of her free, adorable patterns. One is Daffodils and the other is a cute little whale. No lie, I was just thinking how I wanted to crochet a whale and some flowers for my mom for Mother’s Day. So this CAL is perfect!
