A Chill in the Air ......

....... with the Autumnal Equinox on Tuesday, seems we are definitely into autumn now, certainly I've had to put the heating on a couple of times over the past day or two and today is particularly grey and dull. Hence - I am in the mood for building up my stash of colourful socks to keep my toes warm during chillier days ......
 Recently completed ..... I love these!
 Currently on the needles ........
..... including this bright and chunky jumper,
which will definitely be keeping me warm come winter time!

I've also now finished the box that I began whilst round at Lindsay's the other day, I'm quite pleased with the result, but can't upload photos of it just yet!  Now I'm trying to get inspired to do a similar makeover on another box I have (well, it's in the form of a stack of three papier mache books with the top cover opening to reveal an inner hidey-hole).  At the moment I'm thinking Victorian, science, mechanical, fossils, entomology ..... rather steampunkish anyway.  But I've just got to let the ideas mull for a little while.


  1. Ooooh, they're lovely Heather! Is that the wool I got you at Christmas? x

  2. Yes, the purple ones are - finished them awhile back but saving them up to wear once the days get chillier ..... why, are you after some new ones too? :o)
