It has a veriety of orange wool strips, the pattern, the instructions, some nice pictures, and a cinnamon stick for the stem. It's looks very easy, and the pictures are really cute. Here is what Beth's pumpkin looks like when hooked:
I'm hoping for the same effect in orange. I will be so thrilled if mine turns out anything like hers, but I might be in luck because I am a Bona Fide Packer, and this project loves packers!
Now I need the video of Beth making this pumpkin while talking to people, drinking coffee, and maybe refereeing fights over which kid gets the remote. Actually, if there is a video about refereeing which kid gets the remote, I might need that one too. Now I need TWO videos. Or two remotes. It depends on how much trouble I want.
I'll post my pumpkin when I'm ready to move on to the next stage. Not sure how much more hooking I'll get done this week, my family leaves on Friday for a week in Atlanta and Nashville. If anyone can recommend a video on how to have a calm, happy 13-hour ride in a minivan across the country in the heat of July with three kids and a cranky husband, I'm all ears.
