Pumpkin Harvest

Last weekend I spent most of Saturday making pumpkins from machine felted wool sweaters.  I have been collecting orange lambs wool or merino sweaters over the past year to make these cute guys…

Lovely, soft and very fall feel. Remind me Halleween's approaching. Autumn is a season of harvest. Wish you a fruitful week and year.

The pumpkins look utterly darling!
You must have collected a lot of sweaters--I can't honestly recall ever seeing an orange sweater, so the fact you found some for making those pumpkins is pretty astonishing to me!
