With the autumn months upon us, the weather has been so glorious this past week, that I’ve been leaving my desk at every available opportunity, making the most of these last few weeks of warmth before the cold sets in.
Whenever I think of autumn, cosy nights by the fireplace instantly come to mind. There's nothing I love more than snuggling underneath a fluffy blanket, with a mug of hot cocoa keeping my icy fingers nice and toasty, and crochet project laying readily by my side.
Is there anything quite as nostalgic as the smell of hot cocoa? The smell takes me back to when I was just a little girl and my mum would make my brother and myself each a warm mug, filled to the brim, as we enjoyed a snuggly evening in the fort we had just built from a mountain of blankets and pillows.
Hot cocoa is as much a part of every childhood is, as playing in a sandbox or flying a kite. Recently I was feeling a bit sentimental and decided to whip up a quirky pair of ankle baby booties, inspired by the warm tones on display every autumn.
I happened to have some Sirdar Cotton DK in my stash, which was the perfect fit for this little project... Not too chunky, and the skeins came in the most beautiful neutral shades!
If you have a little pair of tootsies that need to be kept warm, make sure to crochet an adorable pair of Cashmere Avocado Booties or a darling set of Autumn Blaze Booties!
