Little Knitted Pumpkins

Its been a while since I posted, so here is a simple, seasonal little something to cheer up an autumn day:
These are a doddle to make starting with a short section of tubular knitting. I cranked mine out on the antique sock machine, but you could knit yours or even re-purpose an old sweater sleeve or a dead but decent sock. Mine is a good size for a pincushion, but any size goes with these.

I've written up instructions over at Downsizer:

And finally, because I can, here's Tesla the kitten modelling one. I have been warned that ginger kittens will eventually get their revenge for such sartorial slights, but I'm going to enjoy it whist he's small enough to put up with it without complaint ;)

Love the ginger kitty, Sally!
Thanks for the idea, and especially as an option for handknit (now hole-y) sock leg repurposing. All I'd come up with was the possibility of hand warmers, and one can only find a use for so many of those!
Of course, there's always the possibility of stuffing a pumpkin with catnip.... ;)
