Autumn has definitely arrived in Wales. There are still some small reminders of summer lurking, but they are now far and few. Blue skies, a few warming rays and a little bit of colour in the garden is all that remains.
However, October is my favourite month of the year, and I totally agree with Anne of Green Gables who said: “I am so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”.
The colours in nature are changing and the light outside becomes all mystical, with low mists and early morning frosts. This is the perfect time to rummage in my yarn stash and cosy up with my knitting or crochet in front of the fire. A time for making small and quick projects to fend off morning and evening chills in the air, or to start working on special hand made gifts for all those peeps close to our hearts.
To celebrate the golden month of October I want to share a little Frippery with you…
…this is ‘Meleri’, a cute little Neckerchief tie. So cute, it bears no resemblance to the utilitarian versions worn by scouts and sailors. This wee frippery is quickly knitted in no more than a couple of evenings and will jazz up any outfit and keep the chill off just as mornings and evenings turn a little colder.
Special good news, only about 100m of yarn is needed for this cutie, which I am sure we all have in our stash. Go on, what are you waiting for! Download the FREE Pattern right away by clicking here! Pour yourself a nice cup of tea (or something stronger if you fancy!), settle down with a good movie and get clicking away.
