Autumn Equinox

A lovely bright crisp day here - perfect for celebrating the Autumn Equinox. After this the nights start to draw in and there is a noticeable crispness to the air today. Time to dust off the slow cooker and start thinking of lots of yummy casseroles. Must remember to go and check the nearby hedgerows for blackberries - there is nothing my two boys like more than blackberry and apple crumble with custard.

The boys spent the morning at rugby training and then just as long again foraging for conkers at the base of some lovely old horse chestnut trees.

This is truely a smug time to be a knitter. The other parents were shoving hands into pockets and shuffling to keep warm. I had a yummy cowl and some fingerless mitts from last year which I was very glad of this morning - plus the yummy hot chocolate in a flask was a big help too.

Then I came home to find this ball of cashmere gorgeousness from the lovely Sarah from the Sheep Shop in Cambridge. My lovely winnings from her recent hexipuff prize draw. It is 175m of pure 4ply heaven.

I'm thinking cowls...a  little bit of lace...mmm...maybe finally get round to trying a mobius cast on...

Maybe this time next week I will have something super stylish on the rugby touchline!
