October

This a 100% mohair carded batt. I dyed the beautiful fibers first (from a bag of very curly locks). I’m so eager to spin this, it is really stunning and  incredibly soft.

Autumn is progressing very fast. There was a lot of frost this morning. In some places, it didn’t melt at all. The sun is now quite low.

Autumn Magic

I found the perfect tree, isn’t it lovely? It’s now getting much darker and the leaves are falling very fast. The right atmosphere for looking forward to Halloween.

New Design

As I redesigned my Home, I also redesigned my blog, although the latter was so much more complicated, it was a steep learning curve and it took me two weeks of intense mind wrenching, BUT it is done at last! And I’m going to experiment with these new possibilities in a creative project. But more about this later.

I also added the possibility to suscribe to my blog at the bottom of the homepage on the right hand side , you can enter your email address and you’ll get a notification when I publish a new post. There is also a good old fashionned guestbook where you can leave a comment. I love these vintage things.

I finished a forest green scarf for a very gentle soul. I dyed all the yarns and spun half of them. It’s very soft and warm. Like being hugged by a kind spirit of the woods.

I realise I haven’t posted any photos at all of my walks since August. Because I didn’t take any. There has been a very dangerous epidemic that has affected dogs in Norway, killing many of them. The veterinary Institute still doesn’t know what precisely is causing all these deaths. So, I left my camera at home all this time in order to get full control of what my girls were doing, making sure they were not putting their nose on something unsavoury. The outburst has now subsided but I’m still wary.

Today, I had to take pictures, autumn is at its peak, and its most gorgeous. Now, exactly now, is my favourite part of the year.
