Autumn is definitely underway now, and though Iâ€™m always sorry to say goodbye to summer, I do love to see the gorgeous colours of the trees as the leaves start to fall, as well â€“ of course â€“ as the opportunity to dig out plenty of handmade jumpers, cardigans and scarves!
Weâ€™ve got some gorgeous autumn makes for you this issue as well, from Catherine Waterfi eldâ€™s stunning granny square jumper on page 36 to the amazing Tunisian colourwork scarf on page 52. Or if youâ€™re after something seasonal that you can hook in an evening, then turn to page 54 for our gorgeous acorn necklace design. Though I have to admit that my personal favourite this month is Emma-Jayne McKenzieâ€™s Lighthouse
Shawl on page 58, with its clever design moving from striped lighthouse to scalloped sea waves. Itâ€™s currently at the top of my autumn â€œmust makeâ€ list!
Itâ€™s no secret Iâ€™m a big fan of hand-dyed yarns (my handmade sock and shawl collection is quite extensive!) so I was delighted to interview some of my favourite dyers for our feature on page 84 â€“ hand-dyed yarn really does add an extra-special personal touch to a project.
Finally, this month weâ€™re publishing the last part of our mystery crochetalong â€“ turn to page 26 for the fi nal section of Sarah Shrimptonâ€™s gorgeous
shawl design. I canâ€™t wait to see everyoneâ€™s fi nished projects!
