There have been some beautiful colours to admire this Autumn. The trees have been just amazing. It's a delight to go for my morning walk and marvel at the gorgeous yellows, reds and oranges.
I've been knitting up some colourful goodness of my own. My Fair Isle cardigan is now complete.
It's knitted entirely from leftovers of gorgeous Shetland 4ply wool, a mix of Jamieson & Smith and Jamieson's Spindrift.
In total I used 19 different colours and 369g of yarn. It's a true stashbuster.
I'm really pleased with how it looks and the colour combination is just perfect.
I'm loving knitting Fair Isle (I always do). It gives me so much pleasure to see the colour patterns evolving. The only thing I have never knitted in Fair Isle is socks. For some reason I've shied away from these. I think I'm worried about the fit. Socks need to fit well and if the tension is wrong on the Fair Isle, then it could be a disaster. But I feel that the time is right for me it give it a try, so my next Fair Isle project will definitely be socks. Just got to steel myself to cast on and get on with it.
Last week was my husband's birthday. I thought I'd share a picture with you of the cake I made him (I pinched the idea from Pinterest).
He liked the surprise and the cake was delicious. (For anyone concerned, Barbie's legs fitted back on no problem afterwards!)
Have a good weekend.
