My favourite season - Autumn is here and I have been enjoying it from the comforts of my parent's house in the UK.
With the cold crisp and sometimes sunny weather, I have become more than enthusiastic about starting new knitting projects and finishing old ones.
So many colours and yarns are to be found here, I have treated myself to a new Rowan pattern book, yarns from Rico and Sirdar, plus new packaging for my Etsy shop from Paperchase.
I just love the creative vibes I get from being in the UK, the colours of the changing leaves, the countryside walks, exploring castles and of course reading British design magazines.
The fall colours I am in love with right now, ranging from greens, blues and teal to browns, creams and burnt orange.
The autumnal colour palettes are best found from nature, with thick chunky yarns used to make hats and scarves for the colder months.
