Cosy times

This weekend, quality time with the cat, apple and pear cake, and a trip to the Affordable Vintage Fair. Next, lasagne and Downton Abbey. Yep, we're getting cosy as it's definitely Autumn out there...

Hello Autumn

What a glorious weekend it was. Season of mist and mellow fruitfulness, indeed.  We took a saunter by the river at Hammersmith and had a gorgeous roast at the Old Ship.  Oh, and basked in the hot sunshine too. More of the same for a beautiful Autumn, please!

Retro Knitting

Having inherited this fabulous book from my mum,

I opened it up for the first time today, and found this collection of handwritten patterns - love the idea of inheriting something that has been tried, tested and annotated, like getting a secondhand book with a stranger's name and notes in, so personal and somehow "connected". Plus, if you look closely, you can see the book is one year older than me! It also contained this very stylish 80s lovely. 

It has some amazing photography: I especially like this motorcycle chick, modelling a sweater!

And this is very glamorous - but a cable knit bikini? Hardly practical!

I think I'll be sticking to hats for the moment ...
