Kirkstall Abbey in November

It's not the kind of day that looks like a good one to go out if I'm honest - it's blowing a gale, dark, murky, and showery.

I'll show you the knitwear we photographed another time. ;)                                 Finally, does anyone know why these windows are not all the same size? You can see that they're not the original window sizes, but the original sizes also are not all the same size, which seems odd.

Today I thought I'd introduce you to the next featured pattern in our lovely Drift Collection. Hardcastle is a pair of cosy cabled fingerless mitts.. they're beautifully detailed, and what I really love is that because the palm of the hands is ribbed, you get a really good-fitting mitt, which will stretch or contract to the size of your hands (although there are different sizes available too. Here's the pattern information Materials Eden Cottage Yarns Whitfell DK (DK, 50g; 100% baby Alpaca; 100m / 109yds per 50g skein) Shade: Lichen; 1 (2) x 50g skein(s) Needles and Accessories One set...
