Autumn :: Outono

Fall has definitely arrived to St. Andrews. The trees have gone from green to beautiful shades of red, yellow and brown while some birds, such as the black headed gulls and the eiders, have already changed their plumage into winter coats. It feels good to go for a walk in the sunny afternoons and to stay home cooking or claying in the grey days with a good cup of tea.

My work table hasn’t been immune to all these changes. Woodland critters started jumping around with tiny nuts and delicious hazelnuts, and at the same time that I kept “knitting” colourful outfits to warm up the little creatures during their strolls.

O Outono chegou definitivamente a St. Andrews.  As árvores despiram-se do verde para se cobrirem de fantásticos tons de vermelho, amarelo e verde. Ao mesmo tempo, alguns dos pássaros locais já mudaram para a sua plumagem de Inverno, como o guincho-comum ou o eider. Sabe bem sair para uma boa caminhada ao final da tarde  nos finais de tarde ensolarados, e ficar em casa nos dias cinzentos, a cozinhar ou a trabalhar com massa polimérica (com uma boa caneca de chá à mão).

A minha mesa de trabalho não tem sido imune a estas mudanças. Seres do bosque saltitam à minha volta com bolotas e deliciosas avelãs, e em simultâneo vou “tricotando” roupa colorida para manter as pequenas criaturas quentes durante os seus passeios.
