Autumnal Spinning

We’ve been staying with my mother-in-law for the last few days. There are many reasons I love staying with her – she’s very relaxed, teases Boy and has a lovely selection of wine – but the thing I enjoy most is that she has a garden. I love nothing more than wandering around whilst eating my breakfast. This morning, the frost made all the spider webs shimmer.

I love this time of year and especially dew-drenched webs. To me it’s nature knitting (obsessed much?!) and sparks ideas for more designs. These tend to be lace patterns which I love working on. This morning I’m thinking about beading patterns but also research I remember seeing about spiders given different drugs and effects on web building and suddenly I’ve got to draw and plan!
