Yarndango Finished Project XII – Spirited Pumpkin Finger Puppet

This little pumpkin has his own surprise (Muhahaha).  spiritedpumpkincollage

He is my Spirited Pumpkin Finger Puppet which is made in a fun and unique way.  It can be made in under 90 minutes if you’ve got all your materials ready.  Can be made quicker if you are a speedy crocheter!  As a bonus, you can change up the colors, and make a wormy apple variation of the finger puppet and it’s all available for only $3.99 USD!  Finished items from this pattern may be sold since it is my own design and I don’t have to worry about infringing on anyone else’s licensing or copyrights.  Please be sure I get design credit.  🙂

  1. I love the back side of your evil pumpkin…can’t wait to see the front! David surprised me this morning with an early birthday gift, it’s a…well I am not sure what exactly it is called but it’s a knitting loom that is interchangeable with different pegs and parts. It’s pretty cool! I am starting to get the hang of it, I think! Now I may be able to make that baby blanket I have been wanting to make for my future nephew and maybe his older sister too.
    OH, also want you to know that I finally got your kitty in the mail this morning. I am sorry it has taken me so long to get it to you. Everytime I walked out the front door I left it on my desk. I finally sent him to work with my husband last night and he put kitty in the mail. You should have him by Monday, I hope!

    I’m excited to post the front of him and his little surprise! I think I’ll get to do that later today since he has already been received by my swap partner! Oh, no problem about the kitty! It’s been a good excuse for me to clean my house up a bit so I can find the perfect place to show him off! Can’t wait to meet him! That is so awesome about the loom! I’m wondering what kind it is. I got a Martha Stewart one that is interchangeable-it sounds a lot like what you are describing and lets you work with finer yarn instead of two strands held together all the time. Of course, I haven’t had much time to learn to use it yet, but I will! Maybe next year I’ll do a yarndango using looms! LOL. I really want to learn – I’ve done only a shoulder wrap on the loom but it was so much easier and faster than knitting by hand. But that was a while ago so I’ve forgotten how to do that too!

    • That’s what he got me, the Martha Stewart loom. It is pretty cool. I wove a couple of squares together yesterday, just playing with it.
      One of my friends messaged me on facebook last night to ask me if I could make her an adult size pumpkin hat, she said it was for her inner child…lol. I can’t wait to get it finished and see how it turns out, because I might make one for myself.

      LOL! That’s awesome! Yay for the inner child – love that! 🙂

  2. That is so funny and creative! I love your Yarndango project and all of your participants creations are beyond adorable! This particular one you made is crazy detailed. No wonder your pumpin looks a little disgruntled- open his top and out pops a funny little ghost – genius! You conjour up amazing things in that pretty little head of yours and bring them to life. It’s so neat to see what you come up with! I love this one!

    Aw, thank you so much, Anniebella! You just made me smile a mile wide. That’s so sweet that you took the time to say all that. I’m so glad you like my work! It makes me feel so wonderful! 🙂 Love and hugs to you!

  3. You are so creative! I LOVE IT!!! 😀

    Thanks, Linny! Even though some of these challenges make me a little nuts, I really am enjoying them. It’s kind of like a fun way of looking at problem solving. I’m always trying to figure out how to make something work. LOL.

  4. Awwwww, I love him!

    Thanks, Pumpkin! Of course you would love him – that’s your nickname! LOL! But I’m glad you do! I’m trying a variation on the pattern right now and we’ll see if it comes out okay. If it does, then I’ll post more pics.

  5. That looks fantastic! At first, I thought the “evil surprise” was going to be the evil face on the pumpkin, but then there was the ghost (demon?)! And what an evil grin on his face 🙂

    LOL – Thank you, Laura! The expression on his face still cracks me up. He’s kind of creepy but also kind of smug and it almost looks like he’s saying “howdy” and tipping his hat!
