Well, I can tell it's becoming Autumn again by the cool of the air in the morning, the chestnuts in the shops, the darker evenings and the fact that I've got my first cold of the season!
I love the Autumn. My thoughts turn to winter yarns and winter recipes. Soups, stews and scarves.
This is the yarn for my ISE 5 exchange scarf. It's Debbie Bliss Maya - which has been discontinued, but they still have it at Bobby Davison's in Hartlepool. I just wish it had been reduced along with the discontinuation. It may become a My So Called Scarf.
And this is the sock I am making for Harvest Sock Swap. It's a modified version of a pattern called Heatwave I found on Ravelry. Oh, Ravelry! How many hours have I lost in there since I got my invite?
I was blog hopping from the Hogwarts Sock Swap blog the other day and found a link to some Harry Potter fan fiction. Now, as someone who regularly has to plough through 11 year olds' reworking of the series handed in as original work fan fiction is somewhere I don't usually go. This one was good, however...if you like Severus Snape...and if you are prepared to believe in his humanity...
