On a grey rainy late summer day, like today, my thoughts inevitably turn towards autumn. As much as I love spring and summer, there is always something alluring about a new season... new clothes... new colours and textures at home.
I have recently finished my latest cable knit cushion cover (in a different pattern than these), in a totally delicious grey cashmere/alpaca mix "Kashmir Alpakka" from SandnesGarn. The softness is unbelievable, and worth the rather hefty price tag on the yarn.
I do like the way the soft grey works with the pinks in the chair´s loose cover. I also like the way the cushion matches my favourite grey knit/crochet blanket.
But just to assure you (and myself!) that it still is indeed summer, I have included the very colourful (and quite clashing) bouquet I picked yesterday for a lovely dinner party with friends on the deck. The candles in my "lanterns" (from the previous post) were lit and cast their pretty light late into the August night...
