Who would have thought that I would have been sitting in the garden knitting this afternoon, in mid-October, never mind capturing this little fellow! A ladybird in October!
Knitting has been quite productive this week, but there is nothing quite finished. The Aria Delicato scarf is coming along nicely, and should be finished by the end of the week. The Posh yarn merino and silk mix is fabulous.
I've cast on a pair of simple ribbed socks this afternoon. I'm using up some stashed Trekking to make these Christmas pressie socks for a friend.
I quite like the clever patterning on these yarns, but sadly, I've been completely overcome with everlasting love for the hand-dyed and original colourways yarns, especially those from across the pond.... swoon, swoon! The pattern knits up very quickly, as you can see.
I've received the October yarn from Anne Hanson's 'Fall in Full Color Club' club this week. It's Briar Rose Fibers 'Fourth of July' in gorgeous autumnal colours. It's a worsted weight and very pretty.
The pattern is released tomorrow. I can't wait! We're off to Yorkshire next Friday for half-term, but I expect I'll still popping in for a visit. Have a good week.
