Autumn Has Definitely Arrived

Well the days are now so much shorter and cooler I'm guessing that the Indian summer we were expecting in September isn't coming after all. My log fire in the front room has been lit 3 times over the last 2 weeks, it makes it feel so nice and cosy that all I want to do it knit. 

I have added a new range of Fingerless gloves for the fall and winter, I wear these a lot so thought they would be a great addition to our collection.

These are knit in a beautiful mix of Merino wool and Alpaca. This is a really soft and warm yarn. You can check out the listing here:
Fingerless Gloves

I have many different styles in both wool and acrylic.  

These are knit in a beautiful British chunky pure wool. I love bright colours.  You can check out the listing here:

Chunky Fingerless Gloves

These are fun and quirky gloves knit in a mix of acrylic chunky yarns. Super warm and longer. Check out the listing here:
Fun and Quirky Fingerless Gloves

These are knit in a self patterning acrylic yarn with a cable design. Cabled Fingerless Gloves

More designs will be added over the next week, just got to go and light the fire again and start knitting!

Thought for the day - which is just what I think about my fire.

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”

Quote of the day:


Watching the Great North Run and Knitting

Sitting watching the Great North Run on the TV and knitting. The millionth runner will cross the finish line soon and make history as this is the first time any event in the world has achieved this.I can't believe 33 years ago I watched the first ever GNR and we were the only people standing looking over one of the bridges just before the Tyne Bridge, now there are 10's of thousands of people watching along the whole of the 13.1 miles. I don't think anyone ever believed it would become part of history and known worldwide. My eldest son (who was 3 when it began) and daughter and my niece have all taken part.  My middle daughter is there today cheering on the runners for Cancer Research and has been supporting the runners of different charities for the last 4 years.  There's nothing like the atmosphere of being at the Finish line to watch your children and everyone else complete the race it is so emotional and uplifting.
