The same day I finally cast off my Spoots scarf - a long, long, long razor-shell lace scarf using Shilasdair Luxury 4-ply. I still need to block it though - not sure if I have enough pins...
And this bundle of sunshine is what you get when I'm thinking about what to do for Nov/Dec in Project Rainbow:
The colour this time is orange - the buttercup yellow Clan and the naturally-dyed pale yellow (horsetail I think) are there just so as to convince myself that the oranges are actually orange. Generally speaking I do not like orange At All. But I'd forgotten I had that ball of the Yarn Yard Bonny (possibly? lost the label of course) in a sort of glorious saffrony colour. It hasn't photographed very well but it's beeeeeautiful. And then there's the two skeins of Bonny (Brushstrokes, the October Surprise) which arrived on Saturday. Lots of orange but I like it!
Better picture of the Brushstrokes here:
Isn't that gorgeous? All autumnal!
If you're not a knitter you're probably convinced I'm speaking in tongues by now. Trust me, it all makes sense.
Right I'm off to make up bags of sweeties for tonight's guisers. Hope the weather is better by then!
