Hey! I’m allowed to be excited for autumn (let’s not talk about evil winter just yet) and with the change in season comes the need to start wearing scarves again.
A few years ago I taught myself how to knit. Nothing fancy, mind you! I only learnt how to knit scarves which is basically not that impressive but never mind that.
With my love of knitting also comes the love of long projects. I don’t knit quickly. In fact I’ve only ever knitted two scarves and they took me a year each. I don’t knit for anyone else but myself; I knit to do something creative and I don’t mind that it might take me a while to make something wearable!
Today I had a delivery from my latest wool purchase so I felt like I’d do this little blog post about it because it’s divine. The colours are perfect for autumn; a wine-coloured red and a melon-coloured orange. The shades both compliment each other and clash which I really like! There’s something about bright colours that are glaringly awkward that makes me enjoy autumn so much!
These two balls are from an Etsy shop BeautifulMayblossom – I couldn’t give a higher praise of the ordering/contact/shipment process. It was quick and friendly and I can’t wait to make yet another scarf which I might be able to wear this year!
