2 small projects

Neither of these are using old stash. I guess depleting stash encourages adding to stash...oh, well. Both projects are from Debbie Bliss's The Knitter's Year. All the projects in the book are "make-in-a-week" projects, but the ones I've done really only take hours, not days, to complete.

Next to the pumpkin candle holder is a pumpkin pin cushion in orange and green Brown Sheep wool. I felted it a little so the stuffing wouldn't show through the stitches.

Below is a door stop I made for on of my doors that tends to close when there's a breeze. The book showed the project in white yarn, but I think the dark fushia looks more dramatic. It took 2 pounds of beans to fill it out.
