A FO, really!

Big hook, big yarn, clear pattern = instant gratification!

This is the Kelechi Slouchy Hat pattern. Very simple pattern that results in a cute hat.

Hubby was clearly impatient with having to
play photographer and didn't wait for me to
actually look his way.

Or back up.

I used a partial ball of Caron pounder that was in my stash and a J hook. The hat was finished in 2 days worth of commutes. It would have been faster, but I fell asleep one way. I'm certain I snored and the person next to me probably won't offer to be my new BFF anytime soon.
Hubby and Pi went to the local farmer's market yesterday morning and scored a whole bunch of pumpkins. They're not actually shiny...just wet.

The little ones are in a large bowl on my dining room table, along with sunflowers that they bought for me too. We're taking our time to decide how the large ones should be decorated.

That leaf wall hanger is actually a table runner that I scored at Kmart for cheap. Because of the way our table and place mats are set up, a table runner just doesn't look right on the table. But it makes one pretty wall hanging for fall.
There's been a lot of baking going on this weekend. Wait til you see!

Great hat. Sounds like you are really settling down in your new home and getting ready for the holidays! Love the table runner as wall decor!

super cute hat, I love fast projects! My current crochet project seems to be taking forever, which makes me never want to work on it.

Cute hat, and pretty decorations! I'm like Kristina P. I always mean to decorate for other holidays besides Christmas, but never get around to it.
