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:
See the splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water.
And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer
making for the sea.
Yet stands the clock at ten to three?
And is there honey still for tea?
The stitch pattern is called Ribbon Basket Pattern and is one of my favourite reversible stitches from the book. I love the way the rib and garter patterning make the design move so that the surface becomes covered with deep rugged folds.

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!
