FO: Pumpkin hat

For some light relief from the shawl, I made a pumpkin.  This project has been waiting around for a couple of years.  The yarn is soft but splits easily and it makes for a nice weathered pumpkin look.  I made the smallest size which used less than one ball of each colour.

Pumpkin hat.

Yarn: Plymouth Sunsette (discontinued)

Pattern: Fiber Trends Pumpkin hat

Duration: 29th July to 11th August.

Started chart 2 on my Seraphim shawl and the pattern is emerging.  Got a tip from the Clayton SnB about lifelines: dental floss.  It shows up well against the dark green and makes the shawl smell a little minty.  My lifeline went in after row 14 of the second chart and it feels like a warm fluffy security blanket.  No matter what happens, I can always rip back to this row.

I don't think this is what the dentist had in mind when he told me to floss daily...
