two little pumpkins

we found a pumpkin patch along the side of the road today while we were out enjoying the day. i picked three. ken was shaking his head the whole time as i looked them over, taking time in selecting just the right one. the gal running the place said it's a girl thing - boys come in, pick their pumpkin and they're gone just about before they get there. to me, they need to be the right height, width, color, etc. and have the right stem.
i haven't carved jack-o-lanterns in a few years. i think it's well past time.

and here's the other little pumpkin i mentioned:
i finished ginger's sweater in the wee hours of the morning and she LOVES it! she gets so excited when i go to put it on. it's a perfect fit. the pattern is the piccolo sweater from the book doggie knits . and it is fabulous! super simple and very well written (the collar instructions carries one little error - switch rows 6 & 7). i am so in love with this book. the little pumpkin goes without saying.

But where's her hat? I loved that her ears were poking out the side...she is going to be one snazzy fashion doggie when she goes outside to poo. Madison still acts like she's paralyzed when we even try to put her collar on, so it will be awhile before she can go for a walk struttin her stuff. Ginger is one lucky doggie to have a mom that lovingly knits her stylin clothes. See... your not the only one who thinks of the animals as important family members. No, you haven't gone koo-koo (at least not for knitting your babies clothes, grin)
take it easy friend, love, Robin

Awww, look at that little cutie all stylin' in her new sweater. Certainly she gave you extra cuddles for all your knitting time? Love the pumpkin picture -- I need to go pick some out too -- this month is just flying by!
