There is still lots of beautiful colour around this week, though it is beginning to fade, as so many of the trees have now lost their leaves. I found a huge hall of Oak Galls, which I collected in anticipation of dyeing some wool. I have no idea what I will knit with the wool, yet, but do let me know if you have any ideas. I did think perhaps some colour work mittens.

Happy exploring!

This week we have had the odd lovely autumnal day, interspaced with heavy rain and high winds.

On Monday we were treated to an eerie, yellow-grey sky, with a luminous orange sun. This was caused by the winds from hurricane Ophelia whipping up Saharan dust!

I also added one of my favourite autumn leaves from the garden.
