Autumn Fabric and Leg Warmers.

 As you may have seen I have made the first item of autumn, it was a joy to make up and so comfortable that it hasn't left me for the last three days!
So inspired by this I took a visit to my local fabric shop, wow yet more joy. Instead of the old cave of a shop it has relocated to the other side of the bridge where it now lives in a lovely spacious and bright new shop! As you can imagine I wanted to buy everything!! I ended up with lot:

Top right is lovely brown stripe wool, yes trousers! Below a floral light cotton for a shirt. The other floral is corduroy and will probably be a top, finally a green fleece which I want to make the simplicity 80s T. shirt again. I love having a list of things to get on and make, so I'm very happy.

I have also been very lucky and was given by a lovely neighbour this amazing pattern. It is untouched 1975, I am in heaven!!



Finally I am not a great knitter BUT, I have made my first pair of leg warmers. It was so much fun, this pair will be making there way to Kent for my sisters birthday, I'm now busy knitting a second pair in turquoise for myself. Hope you are all having a lovely weekend too. x x x
