Pumpkin socks

Pumpkin socks
When our children were young we read them a book called Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper.
 I loved the books that rhymed like this one,
with repetitive lines that the children learned and repeated with you...
'Pumpkin Soup. The best you ever tasted. Made by the Cat who slices up the pumpkin. Made by the Squirrel who stirs in the water. Made by the duck who scoops up a pipkin of salt, and tips in just enough.’
These socks reminded me of the colours of the book and our pumpkins are still out on the garden table. This is a free sock pattern found here and is a bit of an experiment. I am not a knitter and have never tried socks before but the pattern is very good and not too bad for a beginner to follow.  
There are also a few more bits for the Christmas wreath.
A poinsettia flower, pattern here by Happy Berry Crochet, I think.
And some pine cones, pattern by Lucy of Attic24 here
and another one on a blog called In the Yarn Garden here.
