Snippets (of life): Red and Yellow

These last days of Autumn feel so incredibly precious. Chilly mornings and sunny afternoons filled with beautiful colours in shades ranging from gold to red. And of course brown, which serves as an ominous reminder that the beautiful colour will soon be gone and we will be left to face the long drab (and probably wet) Winter. On days like these there's only one thing to do - wrap up in layers and get outside for some family fun to make the most of it. 

Of course, after a family day out there's nothing better than a new project to look forward to. Meet Rondelay, a great little one-skein sock yarn pattern which, as you may recall, is EXACTLY what I was looking for. After today I can't help thinking I'd like to make another... in red and yellow. 
Hope you're having a lovely weekend too. 


  1. This looks perfect for my one skein of Misti Alpaca Hand Paint sock yarn that I've been saving for something special. What a lovely pattern! Thank you for sharing.

  2. You're so right about enjoying these last days of autumn. I'm trying to soak up as much of the colour and sunshine as I can. Love the new project, hope it's stopped that itch for a while! As usual you've given me another project to think about. Enjoy the rest of the weekend :-D

  3. It is very brown when I look out my window, and most of the leaves on the ground are now brown. So it definitely is lovely when you see patches of yellows, oranges and reds.

    Glad to see you have found a project for your wool, and I think another in yellow or red sounds perfect :)

  4. It was such a gorgeous weekend, wasn't it?!

    Love the new project, that yarn is just gorgeous. I struggle at this time of year - so many skeins of sock yarn and I want to knit cosy things!

  5. What fun your ohana always has. What a great pick me upper shawlette to be working upon.
