Yarn Along - 4

Autumn mists early this morning, burnt off now by a glorious warm, sun.
After a lovely day with friends yesterday at a local nature reserve, soaking up this Indian Summer, we have plans to enjoy every last drop of it, a trip to the beach tomorrow, would do it justice I feel, picnic, buckets and spades having a final fling with this burst of goodness.

Yarning Along again with Ginny over at http://www.gsheller.com/ , such a lovely blog, full of family life in all its rich tapestries.
So, a book and whats on your needles, well as I have both on the go constantly, this is an easy post.

On the needles first, a much loved pattern from Last minute knitted gifts, hand/wrist warmers in autumn shades.
Am on my second pair, this time round, have plans for them, giving the gift of warm hands, to fight off the coming cold.
Details of pattern and wool used on my Ravelry page here http://www.ravelry.com/projects/nocton4/womens-hand-wrist-warmers-3


I am delighted to finally be reading Wren Bay by Clarice Fox-Hughes of http://storybookwoods.typepad.com/
a blog packed full of delights and now a novel with the same feel, why did I wait so long to get a copy.

Happy Days to all x

Good day Denise,
what beautiful fingerless gloves. I love more but could use a second pair. I will check them out, thank you. Oh I am thrilled to know you ordered Wren. I hope you find her a mini-vacation but also she inspires you to look for your blessing. Have a Wren day Clarice

I've got a couple of afghans started--chilly here too! The novel sounds inviting; I just finished one of the best I've read--"The Language of Flowers" by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. I HIGHLY recommend it, but I must warn you, you won't want to put it down! Love your beautiful post, Denise. XOXO

The colors in the yarn remind me a fall days with a chill in the air. Beautiful!!
