AnnaLift--Knitting for a Cause.jpg

I knitted over 30 pumpkins from scrap yarn in my stash and delivered them to my daughter's market. The idea was to offer them for adoption for a donation to local charities. I kind of went wild with the colors and patterns, though there were also a slew of more traditional creations offered. To date the pumpkins have raised over $600.

Process:
This was a fiddly layout for me because after I blended the photo into the background, I had to get the pumpkins fitting into the wagon and extractions are not my thing. I proceeded in my usual imprecise way, doing the best I could, then hid any particularly raw edges under other design elements. The background consists of an artsy paper over another artsy paper on color burn blend mode at reduced opacity. To tie the design together at the end I used a few stains from the APP's brush set and colored them yellow, to form a visual triangle.

Wow! You cannot say extractions not your thing - this is amazing! Great blendings & love how the wagon is packed with the pumpkins. Adding knitting theme to it and I just have to give you a Standing O! Excellent work - both the layout and the knitting!

Thank you fellow knitter! I greatly appreciate the kind words and the Standing O! But really, the extractions are definitely imprecise, I am just a master of disguise. ;)
 
Magnifique Laura, j'adore l'idée !!! vous me donnez presqu'envie de ressortir mes aiguilles et laine, bravo pour le standing O !!!! :)

Congrats on the very well deserved Standing O! Gorgeous page for your lovely knit pumpkins.
 
What a fun page and a great cause! (Saw these on Harana's post :) ) The wagon and pumpkins are really great on this page! I wanted to make pumpkins this year but I didn't have any appropriate scraps- so I bought some gold and orange, will make something useless, then I'll have scraps ;-)
