The sun was shining and the punts were meandering slowly along the river, picnickers were feeding the ducks, or just sitting with their feet dabbling in the slowly‐moving stream.
Pink Floyd wrote a song about this very place:
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer
making for the sea.
And is there honey still for tea?
The stitch pattern is called Ribbon Basket Pattern and I love the way the rib and garter patterning forms into deep rugged folds. If you would like to see more details about the Grantchester Scarf, then please click here. The pattern is available for immediate download from the site.
This is the latest knitting idea in my "Winter Knits" blogpost series. Over the next few weeks, I will be looking at lots of ideas for items you can make either for yourself or as a gift for some lucky recipient. If you would like to read the introduction to the series, then please click here.
Many thanks once again to my husband Tim for his photos. I wouldn't get half as much knitting done without being able to sit and knit while he is taking his great photos! If you'd like to see some more of his work, then please have a look at his Flickr site.
Until next time – Happy Autumn Knitting!
