The past few days have really felt like autumn. Lots of orange, yellow and brown leaves falling from the trees, so much rain and it is colder. I made soup for the first time this year and we have even turned on the heating at home. It is has also been perfect knitting weather. I am really loving knitting, watching the even stitches come together and learning all sorts of new techniques. A few weeks back I finished my mara shawl and have been wearing it since.
It is such a squishy comforting wrap which can be worn over my shoulders, like a scarf or tied to hang forward. I used 3 skeins of Madelinetosh tosh dk in rose which was such a beautiful yarn to work with. I must admit I understand what all of the madtosh fuss is about! I have been really trying to show some constraint with online yarn purchasing and ignoring how unbelievably good the aussie dollar is at the moment, perhaps more successfully next week!
