Halloween Knitting: Hats and decorations.
Here are some pumpkin hats and a few cute Halloween knitted decorations. I made the hats from some LB Cotton Ease that I had for several years in the stash. Stems are an unknown acrylic from the stash as well.

The little black cat and jack-o-lantern decors I've had for years. My Grandmother made them around 30 years ago. The face features are just glued on pieces of felt. She used a fine yarn. I put these out every October and think fondly of my Angel Grams, who was my knitting mentor.

Udated on October 16. Here is my niece wearing her hat. She is 6 weeks old today.









slightly different hat pattern:
