Thereâ€™s a slight chill in the air on my early morning dog walks and it makes me smile. I yearn for natural shades and new patterns to tryâ€¦ Autumn is most
definitely on the way and this is always the season when I feel at my most creative.Buy this issue →Go digital →
Thereâ€™s no denying that this year things will be different. Weâ€™re usually
getting ready to head up to Skipton and enjoy the most wonderful weekend at Yarndale. I send the children back to school and then all of a sudden Iâ€™m in woolly heaven. Nothing is quite the same this year, sadly. However, Iâ€™m still determined to capture the joy that I get from this wonderful craft of ours. Choosing a pattern, finding the right yarn and then mulling over shades is a ritual to be savoured, and I know Iâ€™m not alone in this.
So, I hope you enjoy our collection of beautiful autumnal makes. From Jacinta Bowieâ€™s gorgeous jacket to Claire Montgomerieâ€™s cardigan and Sandra Gutierrezâ€™s cabled jumper, it will be easy to create a beautiful and sustainable capsule wardrobe. Layer up with beautiful shawls or stunning wraps, plus fi nd lots of smaller accessories that would be perfect to start for, ahem, the gifting seasonâ€¦
Plus, Joanne Scrace from The Crochet Project has shared her expertise on creating the perfect drape, from hook size to fibre content, as well as creating our gorgeous cover design. And if you are in need of a virtual hug then may I suggest turning straight to page 10 and our new column. Enjoy the issueâ€¦
