Blue Mountains in Autumn

We had a quick 3 day visit to the Blue Mountains this weekend. It never ceases to surprise me that so close to Sydney is such a wonderful place for great food, great examples of early architecture, incredible scenery, stunning vistas and an abundance of wildlife.

We visited Katoomba, Leura and went on a few bushwalks in the Blackheath area. see pictures below.

I have a fondness for mushrooms.

Not to mention a definite nose for more wooly goodness.

The House of Wool at Blackheath.

Yarns purchased included Louisa Harding Grace Wool/Silk, Debbie Bliss Andes and Heirloom Easy Care. There were lots of hand dyed yarns by local dyers and spinning wheels and fibre available. Until I visited, I had forgotten that they carry out very own EcoOrganic Cotton, which they currently have on sale.

I am making Fingerless Gloves and a beret to match. More pictures in the next post.
