Autumn makes – a list of my favourite projects

The air is colder and the light beautiful… here in the Uk, autumn has definitely settled in! After a warm summer of knitting in the hammoc sipping lemonade, it is quite a change, but it feels good too… The leaves are already changing colours, calling for long walks in the woods – I love this!

It is time to cosy up and knit all the things! I just finished my Breathing Space jumper, and I love it. It is comfy, different, light and warm. I used Drops Flora in amethyst and coral, with a touch of red (I thought I would run out of coral… playing yarn chicken is not my favourite game!). I really, really like the result. And I loved the look of my mother in law when she thought I had it all wrong because it looked wonky!!

Next on my knitting list are socks… Autumn essential, if you ask me. I always, always have cold feet! I subscribed earlier this year to the Sock Society by Curious Handmade and it does not disappoint. The next pattern in the bundle is Honey Bey Dance Socks, and they look beautiful!

I will go dive in my stash for the yarn, but it is very likely that I will use Drops delight and Drops Fabel to make them… I’ll keep you posted!

And last but not least, I will need new hand warmers… Essential for taking my teenager to the station in the morning.

I might make up the pattern on that one, unless I go for the Vanilla & Spice Mitts just because they look amazing!

Or… I could try these lovely Log Cabin Mitts

And last, but not least, I am starting a test knit for YarnFlakes, a beautiful jumper called Feriga.

I just ordered some Patons Wool DK in green and grey… Watch this space – photos coming soon.

I have a lot more ideas… But so little time!

What are you planning to make this autumn? I’d love to hear from you!
