I’ve not blogged much at all this month; work has been busy and I decided to take some time out from blogging to focus on recharging my batteries – and enjoy as many hygge moments as possible. I also wanted to focus on finishing my autumnal shawl, which is now completed and is the most wonderful snuggly, cosy shawl to wrap around my shoulders and cosy up in on the colder days. Wearing it gives me a sense of achievement and pride – this is something that I’ve made by hand using only wool and a wooden crochet hook, and while it may not be perfect, it’s something I’ve crafted using a centuries old skill.
This year’s autumnal displays have been amazing, the colours vary from golds to bronzes to coppers to tawny browns with each day bringing another abundance of colours. If you haven’t already, make time for a walk among the trees and enjoy the beautiful palette of nature’s colours.
I’ve set myself a challenge for November. A blog a day each with a different idea for a hygge moment ranging from learning a new craft to recipes to expressing the enjoyment of the simplest things in life that bring us pleasure that we may overlook. “30 days of Hygge” will be starting on Tuesday, I hope you will join me.
