Inspiration Station: Autumn inspiration


It’s only July, but in knitting time autumn is only around the corner. In merely 6 weeks we’ll be headed into September, with kids heading back to school. The leaves will start changing and there will be a nip in the air. Don’t be caught unprepared for the fall chill – knit up some toasty new sweaters and be ready in time for the first frost.

    Beautiful photography and great some autumn winter ideas as it is winter in NZ. Really enjoyed this blog.
    Also just a thought that there are people that follow the blog but live in a different part of the world so have different seasons to you, so a summer top isn’t helpful in our winter what about a mixture of seasonal ideas throughout the year!

    Totally agree Denise!
    I also live in the Southern Hemisphere but aside from that, I love the idea of mixing it up a bit; seeing ideas for both warmer and cooler climes. Even some our very Northern neighbours aren’t always warm in summer & may well benefit from something woollier, longer-sleeved or heavier to wear in their spring/summer.
    But I enjoy seeing a few summer tops in our winter (note- “a few”). I see them as potential ideas for when that warmer weather finally arrives.

    Thanks LK for all the inspiration. 🙂
