The birthday girl came over this weekend to pick up her Tinder cardigan. I’m so happy that she loves her present. With its classic fit, knuckle-length sleeves and stand-up collar, it is pretty much the ideal autumn cardigan.
I love Brooklyn Tweed designs, contemporary classics with a twist. Their patterns are well written, with clear instructions and great attention to detail. Including for the finishing and the sewing of the garment, which I truly enjoyed as everything came just beautifully together.
I may very soon be knitting another one, for my mum. Being the only knitter in the family does keep me rather busy. We all learned to knit as young children, but I seem to be the only one to have stuck with it. Time to encourage them to pick up the needles again, me think.
The weather was lovely, so we had champagne in the garden, followed by a poulet au vinaigre prepared by my other sister. My favourite kind of food, simple but absolutely delicious.
The garden is beautiful this time of year, with autumn just around the corner. The leaves are starting to turn and the light is wonderfully golden. Blessed days.
