Last September, I took Ruth, my Mother, with me to Utah when I went to the Shepherd's Bush Retreat. As is always our custom, we visited the Yarn Shops of any town we visit. The one in Ogden is charming and a woman with the most lilting Irish accent took care of us there. In the window were many knitted pumpkins. She shared the pattern with Mom and what you will see in the next few days are the patch of Pumpkins we now have. Over the last year we have been collecting interesting yarns. The leaves and stems were our own inventions. An early autumn view!
