WINTER WOOLLY WEATHER …

AUTUMN by SASHA SALMINA

HERE on the Island, blustery storms and ramrod raindrops appear to have transformed our beautiful Indian Summer straight into Winter and bypassed Autumn completely this year. October has taken me a little by surprise, I could have sworn before I blinked it was still August! So all those fabulous sweaters that were planned have had to be put aside whilst I dip my toes into my festive list…one day I might just catch up with myself coming back the other way…

Thought you might like a little look at the lovelies I WOULD have chosen if I’d been better organised…

Alex top down sweater
Sometimes simplicity is the key to style. This fabulous top-down sweater could easily become a wardrobe staple… Make in glowing jewel colours and layer over long sleeved tees for the perfect cover-up, and if you grow really attached, make another in a lighter shade for Spring. Even better, the pattern is FREE…
Another fabulous freebie, this time crocheted. I love both disciplines but have to reluctantly admit that not many crocheted garments for adults appeal. This is a definite exception ...Adore that cowl neckline!  (I'd work longer sleeves though because I'm fussy.. lol)

Beautifully subtle cabling and lots of positive ease drew me to this lovely… One of those special sweaters that is worth buying that gorgeous hand spun yarn you’ve had your eye on. You’ll just wish you’d made two…

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee


OK, not strictly a sweater but cardigans count too…
This one is certainly at the top of my side-lined list and it comes in a brilliant array of sizes.

acorns I am sure you are far more disciplined than I am and most likely have your Winter Woolly’s ready and waiting. If not, then would any of these make your to-do list?

Until next time,  Happy (rain-soaked) Autumnal Yarning……Stay safe.
