Day 7 of the Holiday Calendar

December 7th

15 days till Hanukkah
18 days till Christmas
24 days till the New Year
30 days till 3 Kings Day

Two years ago, while visiting the local Farmer's Market, I purchased two "neck pumpkins" as they were called by the farmer or two squash pumpkins. After rooting through my old recipe books, I concocted a way to turn the pumpkins into recipe-ready pumpkin.

Of course once you have made smashed the pumpkin, you have to do something with it. My husband would say that the proper thing to do would be to make as many pumpkin pies as possible.

Marie is the owner of the Etsy store Knitted Gems. Knitted Gems features my entire collection of knitting patterns for the hobby knitter. All the patterns are my original designs. They are provided in a line-by-line written format. Knitting charts are also provided on some of the Easy and Intermediate patterns. Knitted items that were created during the testing of each pattern are also available for sale.
