Knit and Natter


On Sunday I backed a batch of pumpkin scones, packed up my knitting and went over to Sara's house for afternoon tea. It was a gorgeous afternoon chatting away and eating the delicious coconut cookies Sara made. I taught Haidee how to cast on, knit and purl - she picked it up in a flash and then attracted a furry knitting mascot.

Also thanks to Georgia for the two photos below!

  3. Hmmm maybe you can teach me to knit when you're here? I taught myself once, but never got it together enough to be useful...

  5. I love pumpkin scones more than any other baked good. And I love baked goods. I like your idea of topping them with pumpkin seeds. I'll have to do that with our next batch. We usually create a maple syrup glaze for ours.

    I'd like to try knitting again. I learned some basics a few years back and tried to make a scarf, but was never really committed to it.

  6. I tried learning to knit years ago, though I never quite picked it up.

    Those cookies look yummy, by the way.~

  7. Is it wrong to say that I want Fall now?! Your pumpkin scones look amazingly delicious and make me miss pumpkin carving and butternut squash soup. And yes to knitting parties! xx

    What a fun way to spend time with your friends Rebecca! I love knitting/crochet and really enjoyed when I manged to get my sisters hooked on it too. I am planning a "Crafty Crew Day" with a similar idea of my friends bring their own projects & a potluck lunch to spend the day crafting together. It's so much fun to share things that you love!

  11. I literally stopped reading and started drooling at "batch of pumpkin scones." How amazing are these. Do you have the recipe on hand?

  12. What a beautiful post. I always feel a little privileged, being allowed into charming, private moments amongst a group of friends. The cookies look lovely. We don't take afternoon tea enough in the modern world.
