Autumn is definitely my season, not only because I love the colours of orange, yellow, green and brown but I love the early, dew-filled mornings, the smell of this season is particularly earthy and grounding and I love to walk outside when the sun is shining – all year, of course, but particularly in Autumn.
The last week or so here in Norfolk has been superb weather – as has much of the UK, but there is something really special about a big Norfolk sky – people complain that Norfolk is flat but they need to look up to appreciate it properly in my opinion – (sorry, feeling a bit opinionated today!)
Anyway, I digress. All this talk of Autumn and some good news from a family member means that I now have the opportunity to make a baby blanket! Having just finished another blanket for my biggest baby (now 18 and recently off to university) – see some yummy pics below, I have been at a bit of a loose end. Now that the nights are drawing in and it will soon be time to light the fire, what better time that to begin a scrumptious crochet project for the Autumn!
So one off the hook ……….
And another one to start ……
And what is NOT to like about this yarn! It’s a King Cole, DK Flash, colour Summer Fruit and you can follow my progress on my Ravelry page – here
. Ok, so colder days, fog, darker nights and probably rain are about to descend upon us as we charge through Autumn towards Winter but I will have this ray of sunshine to look at for the next few weeks/months which will remind me of all those beautiful sunny colours and bright Autumn days.
