Walnuts in the dyepot. Yet more pumpkin on the stove. An enourmous box of Briar Rose Fiber has arrived and, not a moment too soon; a really wonderful new book has helped me learn to make the most of fabulous hand-dyed yarn. Also, I’m prowling the countryside, and thinking deep thoughts about land. Because “that’s the only thing that matters, Katie Scarlet.”
If you knit with hand-dyed yarn, and buy only one knitting book this year…
This week’s Audible pick is And Did Those Feet: Walking through 200 years of British and Irish History written by Charlie Conelly, narrated by David Thorpe.
I also mentioned Watching the English, by Kate Fox, the definitive work on that elusive quality known as “Englishness”.
The lovely autumn leaf in the header is from Holiday Doodles, this month’s free font from Outside-the-Line.com. PS: You should totally use Yultide Doodles to make Christmas cards this year. Just saying.
Please let me see your shining face (or image of your choice) with a Globally Recognized Avatar.
