It's cold now and all I want to do is throw on the woollens and stay as warm as possible. Getting out of bed in the morning is starting to become more difficult and it won't be long before the lure of the boiler switch reels me in. This year we shall challenge ourselves to see just how far we can go before the heating wins. I know that putting away the last pieces of Summer clothing, I'm already reaching for the cosier, comforting things to wear. And most definitely the tights! It's hard to believe that only last weekend we were slathering the sun cream on the children.
I'm finally feeling the need to reacquaint myself with a knitting project I started early last April, then put down during the premature Summer we enjoyed .. somehow never to be picked up again. Given it's meant for one of the children, I'm hoping there won't be any size issues to deal with!
And I want to sew warmer, thicker fabrics too. But, you know something, I've been at the grey again! French broderie anglaise on soft wool and a crocheted lace adorned purse that heralds the last of the tweed. I am certainly going to miss that!
Have you succumbed to Autumn now .. surely you must have?!
