It’s impossible to ignore the transition between summer and autumn. The days get shorter and the nights grow colder. Petals drop from flowers as leaves turn color. Autumn is about the harvest – a celebration of the fruits of the earth. Why shouldn’t your knitting echo this celebration? This fall, wrap yourself in organic fibers, flowing garments, and soft earth tones. Let your knitting be inspired by nature’s beauty.
