Well, it's orange.

However something went wrong in the leaf department I fear. Unless I just grow pumpkins with unusually large leaves.
I feel successful in weaving the knot, however I'm not pleased enough with it to bother with the ends. This one is headed to the little tin of bits I keep for my darling 2yr old to play with while I tat. She likes to sort them and show them to daddy.
Right now I'm off to try again at that pumpkin. The next post will be number 100!

That looks really cool! I have all the necessary supplies for trying Celtic tatting... I just haven't done it! Good for you!

Your Celtic pumpkin turned out quite a lot better than mine (see today's Tatting Tea Tuesday post for a photo). Your weaving is marvelously regular and even. These knotty gourds turn out so tiny!

I'd like to see one that is doubled in size, but fear that the weaving would be so intricate as to drive me bonkers. LOL!

It just has character! Sweet! I must make some pumkins for The Boss and her Boys. (other 3 grandbabies!)

I think it still looks good. Thanks for posting the link the this pumpkin pattern. I don't think I have ever seen it before. Congratulations on 100 posts!! Have a great day!!

It looks really sweet! You did a GREAT job weaving - so much detail in a little bitty space! Does your little tatter pretend that she made the bits in her tin?

I love it! It's so wee and cute, eek! I printed it out during class yesterday, I need to give it a try this afternoon.
