Gosh its Autumn

Thanks for stopping by and having a look at my little blog...

This is easily my favourite time of the year, the colours are stunning, the nights are drawing in and Downton Abbey is back on the TV! Perfect...



And we all know what Autumn means...Halloween (and coincidentally, my father-in-law's birthday on the say day?!?). Those of you that know me will remember my frantic knitting last year to complete a rather large order for pumpkins (14 in total). So this year I am not going to get my needles in a twist and will not be knitting any more.

I do however, have a plenty of other autumnal projects on the hooks, needles and sewing machine...Jumpers, baby blankets, A-line skirts, carpet bags, crochet bunting, the list goes on.

But my current obsession is for all things Fairisle. This website (http://www.exclusivelyfairisle.co.uk/history-of-fair-isle-knitting.php) has some beautiful designs and also an interesting piece on the history of this stunning technique.
I quite like this offering from Rowan Yarns (http://www.knitrowan.com/designs-and-patterns/patterns/land-girls-fairisle-sweater). And now that we stock the gorgeous Rowan yarn at Butterfly Bright, Sherborne, (http://www.butterflybright.com) there is no stopping me, so watch this space to see what I make...
