Grey cowl. And a new coat.

Today has been a beautiful autumn day. Stefan I and walked over to Norra begravningsplatsen (The Northern Cemetary) which is one of the largest cemetaries in and around Stockholm. It opened in 1827 and about 30 000 people are buried there. My paternal grandparents are buried there along with some of my other relatives. It’s a very beautiful and quiet place. I love going there, especially in the autumn, to experience the atmosphere and to reflect upon memories of loved ones.

I took the opportunity to take pictures of my most recent FO in this beautiful spot.

I think I blocked it a little too heavily, it’s very loose now. I’ll probably wash it again and just let it dry flat without pinning it.

I’m completely in love with my new coat from nygårdsanna! I’m ready for winter. And. It’s made from Harris Tweed.

Many trees still have a lot of green leaves, which means that I can look forward to at least another month of autumn before winter arrives. I love winter, too, but autumn has always been my favourite season. The mood, the colours and the earthy smells.

Happy knitting!

  1. Supersnyggt! Perfekt ihop. Påminner mig om att det är tid att ta ner höst- och vinterkläder från vinden.

  2. Jättefina bilder och din nya kappa är mycket fin, läckert allting och atmosfären i parken. Ser att det inte bara är de färggranna löven som lyser utan även rudbeckior.
