It finally felt crisp enough to wear my scarf this morning. I finished it a few days ago and have been wanting to wear it so badly, but it's been too mild. But this morning was perfect; cool first thing, with a low bright sun and delicious chill in the air. It's made with Drops Nepal yarn, mainly to use up the large amount leftover from my poncho, and I bought another couple of balls of the cream colour too for the third round, joining and fringe. I doubled over the yarn so it was really thick and used a 10mm hook as I wanted something really chunky and robust. It's certainly that, and incredibly warm too.
Are you doing anything nice this weekend? Anything especially autumnal? We have nothing planned, which is just how I like it. John is off. I love the weekends when John doesn't work, they feel much more weekend-y than when it's just me and the kids. There are jobs to do around the house, the kids need some new clothes, there are various errands to run, but nothing urgent. We haven't lit a fire yet, but I must admit I'm looking forward to the first one. We should probably chop some wood this weekend. (When I say "we" I mean John. I'll make cups of tea and say something encouraging.) I'm aiming for some pottering and cooking, and hopefully a walk somewhere. Definitely crochet, and I have two episodes of the Great British Bake Off requiring my full attention which I have to watch with Bella. I'm not allowed to watch it without her and she gets really annoyed with me if I do. I just realised it's Yarndale tomorrow. Are any of you going? Have fun if you do. Tell me what your plans are for the coming weekend, however quiet. I'd love to know.
Happy Friday Night, you lovely lot.
