Rich, warm shades of brown, high relief texture, and filtered sunlight. Pure autumn perfection. Today feels like the perfect day to release Countryline. The straight, clean fit makes it perfect for many things-school uniforms, weekend layering vests, boys, and girls. If you visit the link above you can see the whole gallery.
The little skirt in the picture is one I whipped up in (no joke!) 20 minutes. It took 1/2 a yard of fabric and the Oliver + S Lazy Days skirt pattern (free!). Find that here. Patterns like this are perfect for me because while I do like to sew, I don’t like to take time from knitting, and I’m typically just looking for something to complement the knits! It’s also a great pattern to use when teaching your little ones how to sew. My older daughter thought it was awesome, and insisted I add lace to her version.
For the pictures, I just love the texture of wood–don’t you? It’s so warm and inviting. We took the pictures in late afternoon, with the sun in front of us for a subtle backlight.I just love the smell of the earth in autumn. I love everything about it.
That brown! It screams autumn, doesn’t it? The yarn is none but Quince & Co’s Lark (worsted weight) in the Twig colorway. It’s smooth, soft, local, and the bounce is unparalleled. Perfect for texture. Speaking of twigs, I thought dropped branches would be an appropriate addition to the photo, don’t you?
To celebrate, I’m going to give away 3 copies of this pattern to anyone who signs up to follow this blog!
Until next time!
