Aren’t Autumn trees just the most beautiful thing ever? In New Zealand, most of our native bush is evergreen, and we had a lot of Pine trees where I grew up, so the sight of an Autumn tree is still very exciting for me as I only really started to notice them about 6 years ago.
It is getting chillier here, which I am enjoying immensely, pulling out my scarves and cowls and socks… April socks are complete, YAY!
I love this colourway, LOVE IT! I’ve been saving it in my stash for a few months and decided to pull it out and enjoy the experience of knitting it up. As we have limited amounts of daylight now, I popped them on as soon as I got home and started taking some photos.
Not the best idea when you have a Raymond who has been home alone all day and wants some love!
Cue sock photo bomb of the highest order…
Such the smoocher…
I got a couple of good shots anyway.
And they are finished just in time for my trip to Wellington tomorrow, where it is much colder and I will appreciate them immensely! I’m off for two weeks of training for work, appreciating very much that I am going to visit my family at the same time… I’ll pop in when I can and to update you on my Wholehearted KAL progress, but the next two weeks are going to be full of spending time with my Mum, Pixie, the animals, dyeing wool and knitting.
Oh, and work too of course….
So to round up the month of April, a very pink and green mosaic.
I’m loving those colours a lot. Guavas, Autumn and knitting toys, is what April has been about in my world!
Wishing you a very blessed start to May 2012,
lots of love XXX
