Five Autumn Crochet Colours

Hello

Thanks for calling in.

It's not just our garden that's producing such beautiful Autumny hues.  On a walk not far away, the Heath, woods and residential streets are also looking good.  Let's have a look at those subtle colours.

1. There are a lot of these  fungi, possibly an inedible common earthball, around the woods.


2. The muted jigsaw of bracken turning yellow and brown mixed in amongst still-green-fern and purple heather, also past its best now, is stunning.


3. Whitebeam berries are turning orangey-red contrasting with the tree's grey green leaves.


4.  A yellow choisya brings a bit of sunshine to a dark corner.


5. A white-fading-to-pink hydrangea provides a subtle shade perfect for the time of year.


Faced with this natural beauty plus an urge to buy some wool, I've started a Moorland Blanket designed by Lucy at Attic24 which sits happily next to the heathers in the garden.





Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. Love this time of year with all those beautiful colours. I’ve been tempted by the moorland blanket myself. It will keep you cosy through the autumn as you make it. Have a lovely weekend. B x

    1. It's good to have something back on my hook after the summer and the blanket is looking even better in real life especially in the garden than in the design photos. Thanks Barbara, you too. x

  3. The colours in the blanket match those in nature perfectly. Blankets are great to work on at this time of year, especially as they grow, they keep you warm whilst you crochet.

    1. It's just the right time of year to make one of these blankets and, yes, the knees do need a bit of extra warmth these days. 😊

  7. What a delight to see the blanket amongst the plants. Moorland indeed, such a wonderful name for those colours of yarn.

    1. It fits in really well in the garden at this time of year. The stripes gradually turn to blue to match the sky, so let's hope our sky keeps blue too.

  8. It is certainly looking quite autumnal with you - love your blanket, it looks amazing on the heathers in the garden. Great colours!

    1. Thank you. We've had a late burst of hot sunny weather this weekend which has made the colours brighten but I think we're in for a rainy week now. x
