Autumn

Its getting cold where I live, the fire is burning day and night, the days are short and the Autumn colours are glowing...








....so to keep my hands busy and my lap warm I have started #11 Forestry (Old Penny Cardigan) by Veronik Avery which was featured in Vogue Knitting, fall 2008.


The yarn is Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed in a beautiful shade of gray green with lovely flecks of Autumnal colours...


..Im really loving this pattern, its going much quicker than I thought it would. Heres a close up of the coin cables...


While Ive been knitting 'Old Penny' Ive been cosily sitting by the fire listening to the audio book of "Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski. I brought this from Audible.com and now have a wish list a mile long. I love how you can download the books straight onto your laptop or audio listening device at a pretty reasonable price. You can also listen to a snippet of the book to see if you like the sound of the reader. If you like books check it out!

Autum does produce beautiful colours! A great season for knitting. I am jealous of your fire - sounds lovely!
