AUTUMN DAYS WHEN THE GRASS IS JEWELLED...........
The garden is suddenly beginning to accept the rolling in of Autumn. The recent hot days have kept things going longer than usual, but slowly and surely she is making her mark.
There are some delicate spots of colour still lingering and autumn leaves and berries beginning to add their own tones from the colour palette too.
I look forward to the start of each and every season, as they bring their own fresh perspective on our world.
There is always a shift in my knitting habits too. Out come the scarf, hat and woolly sock patterns. Not that I need to much excuse to knit a pair of socks.
This week, I've managed to complete 'Miss Doolittle'. She has been grafted, blocked and photographed.
It's a lovely, easy knit that grows very quickly. I'm so pleased I made the decision to go with this pattern rather than theshalette, Hazeline, that I should have been knittting with my September yarn.
I've also started another 'Henley with a Twist'. I love wearing the first one and enjoyed the pattern so much, that I knew another would soon be sitting on the needles.
It's the same yarn as before, The Woolen Rabbit's Essence in colourway 'Forever in Blue Jeans' . As I am 'forever in blue jeans' the colour seemed very appropriate. I'm already addicted to it once again!
We've enjoyed a return of slightly warmer weather again this weekend. Yesterday we decided to take a stroll down into the city for a coffee.
We mooched around the Farmer's Market stalls and made one tiny purchase..... some delicious marshmallows, flavoured with blackcurrants and violets. SCRUMDELICIOUS!
Needless to say, they are all long gone, otherwise I might have offered you one! Good evening, see you soon!
