Saffron by Elena Nodel in Wendy Sorrento
Teapot Cozy Wrap by Debbie Bliss in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran (light pink)
As evidenced in the picture, the light this morning is strangely orange and other-worldly. We had our first frost last night. It's truly Autumnal. It makes my decision to knit the girl's ballet cardigan before finishing the teapot cosy, the right one. Since Wednesday's update the cardi now has most of one sleeve, all ends sewn in and ribbon threaded through (the latter at Little Miss' request and under her supervision). Ballet class is tomorrow at 4pm so I need to get to it. I love this pattern, and won't be stopping at two - luckily it goes up to teenage size so I can get plenty more out of it. As soon as it's done I'll get back to the cosy/cozy - the ball of cashmerino has suffered some kind of prolapse in my bag, and one thing I can't stand is a messy ball of wool.
In other news, My Boy finally made it to karate grading (he missed the last one) and earned his yellow belt. He's very happy about it.....although I still think he looks nicer in red!
Today is a day for making use of some of our knits, getting outside and kicking leaves. But first another cuppa. Brrrrr, it doesn't half look chilly out there.
