On Tuesday morning we had a very strange sun in the cloudy sky. It looked more like the moon through a thin layer of clouds.
But it was an orange sun, and the cloud was sand from Sahara and soot and ash from the forest fires in Spain and Portugal.
I have finished the projects I had on my needles for the Wool Day. This is a pair of fingerless mittens in 50% wool, 50% alpaca. Warm and lovely and soft and not itchy at all.
This gathered more people, I was working on the heels and the visitors couldn't believe how easily they were knitted on the one long circular needle. This is sock yarn, 80 % wool and 20% polyamide.
Today our grandson had an outing for men only, all three generations together made a fire in the backyard and they grilled sausages on sticks together. It is getting colder, just a few degrees above freezing point during the day. Everyone had red cheeks and a cold nose when they came in for afternoon tea.
The last yellow leaves are falling, this was like a lace curtain.
