Brought to you by the colour orange

I had to wait a while for the postal service to carry a little package from Australia to the US before I could share this with you. Isn't she the most adorable pumpkin??

When I first saw the Pumpkin Hat, I knew I had to knit it for my good friends' little girl! And it's the first hat I ever made. Too easy. It's a great pattern. Very pumpkin-ish. And she looks a perfect Cinderella with those long, blonde curls.

And so, after having stocked up on more orange, I've now cast on my Orange Juice Coraline.

I coerced a crocheting friend into making a chain for me the other day so I could begin the provisional cast on. Yes, I know the crochet chain is the easiest thing in the world to do and the odd thing is... I can even crochet a little. I've crocheted chains before (well, of course, since that's how you start learning crochet!). And I've crocheted tiny owlets, which I can't recommend enough. But for the last month, I've been unable to get my fingers to behave. I get a knotty, rope-y mess for my effort.

Now I just have to refrain from casting on anything else even remotely orange, because, seriously, it's beginning to look like I have a problem!

Anyway, time to start grating. I made potato, zucchini and mushroom cakes last night with generous amounts of garlic and spring onions and they were so scrumptious, I'm doing it all over again tonight.
