Yarn Along

I always feel really happy that I'm able to join in with Ginny at http://www.gsheller.com/2011/11/yarn-along_23.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+gsheller%2FqXrF+%28small+things%29 for here weekly yarn along, I think it's because my knitting skills are not that great but I still love it!

Here in Devon it is our first proper frost this morning, I' m thankful I'm not planning to to dash off anywhere fast.I will be using the Wild Garlic, gooseberries and me by Dennis Cotter for the Gingered Pumpkin Chutney that I'm  making today. I have been very homely over the last few weeks berley travelling a few miles from home, I feel maybe I should get out in case the weather takes a turn!? I am still reading the Distant Hours and enjoying it too, and finally Om magazine, I am very inspired by yoga and have even made my own yoga top as seen on my sewing blog here : http://charlottesewfarsewgood.blogspot.com/2011/11/yoga-happy.html .

Finally the knitting, I have mastered moss stitch, oh it's so lovely! I am making a scarf for my Dads Christmas present in a gentleman's dark blue.

I look forward to seeing everyone elses progress today! x x x

Our scarf looks really lovely - a great colour too. Someone recommended The Distant Hours to me ages ago and I forgot about it. I do like staying at home at this time of year, pottering around in the kitchen. xxx

Your dads scarf looks lovely. Moss stitch is a lovely texture and very manly I think?
I too like to be close to home as the frost comes and the days are shortened.
