Although it's still relatively warm, the autumn has clearly arrived and I'm feeling hopeful as to having some more knitting done in the coming months. Lately I've been inspired by bright autumnal colours like mustard, burnt orange and brick. Colours I wouldn't have even dreamed of wearing say 5 years ago. Heck, I even bought myself orange and yellow tights!
I've also had my eyes open for a nice mustard cardigan, but since I haven't found any I decided to make my own. I found this lovely lace cardigan pattern from Subversive Femme and ran to buy some knitting yarn. There are also instructions for long sleeves which I'm going to make.
I chose the 100% alpaca yarn from Hjerte Garn, because it was the right thickness and colour. I used this same yarn for my Rainbow sweater. Some silk blend would have also been lovely, but I wasn't willing to pay a 100 Euros for the yarn alone, gee!
I can't wait to finish my previous project so I can get started on this one! I love summer, but I also love the colourful tights and cozy sweaters, crisp air and beautiful colours of autumn (as long as it doesn’t rain).
What have you been inspired by lately? Are you looking forwards to the coming seasons?
