We interrupt our scheduled broadcast of the Festival of the Neckwarmers to bring you a short visual treatise on small white objects.

A cake of Sandalwood soap

A net of garlic

An envelope

And a stitch sampler with a ball of wool

(Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran to be precise). So far we've tried a couple of Fabric stitches and some Raspberries! But we may yet return to First Principles.

In other small white object news coverage, we found this via dogged's flickr favourites.

The autumn rains are upon us, all is pretty much perpetually soggy and chilly and so we are confined indoors with nothing to do except knit a hot water bottle cover, drink cups of tea and listen to a BBC audio-book: Kate Winslet reading Sense and Sensibility.

Which of course is sheer agony, but we struggle on, thanks for your concern.

Kate Winslet does a fine Magic Faraway Tree too.

Garlic chicken tonight, then?

I bought Kate Winslet reading Magic Faraway Tree for my babe, and I think I've enjoyed it just as much as Lily!

That little lamb is uber cute.

Like your study in white. Enormously.

I feel so clean and vampire resistant.

*Scritches* to the pups. Hope you're all surviving the rain with chew toys, tea and knitting by the fireplace.
