Autumnal in August?

Here in the UK there's a definite chill in the air. It might only be mid August but there's been something of a discussion about casting on some layers to help us transition into Autumn. In case the weather does get a little warmer (and we hope summer isn't over YET!), we're going for light pullovers, tees and cardigans to help us layer on those cooler mornings. 

Here's some things inspiring us right now:

Silverlode, designed by Kristen Orme calls for Scrumptious 4ply and we think it's perfect for layering. Multisied and available for direct download on Ravelry. Perfect. Shown here in the 'Oyster' colourway. 

(c) Fyberspates

Stonor by Belinda Boaden was featured in our first Scrumptious Collection and is also available for single download on Ravelry. Multisized and worked up in Scrumptious 4ply, this teal coloured sample would be an easy layering piece that's fun to knit too. 

(c) Darn it and Stitch

We all love this super styled sample worked up in the Sunshine colourway of Vivacious 4ply (check out that tea cup ring- how cute!) Doris the Drape is a versatile shrug that can be worn in so many different ways and is available to download. 


Time to grab a warm drink and knit up some layers!

So in case the Cumulus review isn't enough to get you buying a copy of Interweaves Knits Fall 2014 magazine this week, we peeked inside and look at the goodies! A feature from Clara Parkes on her new yarn venture, the great Autumnal cover sweater from Ramona Gaynor and we spied Cumulus fan Susanna IC has a new shawl featured in there too. You can grab your digital copy now!

As with all Inspiration Knits, the patterns include clear instructions and options to tailor the accessories to your needs. Each accessory is worked up in under one skein so this is a collection that could easily be worked up in just two skeins of VIvacious 4ply. 

'Peacock' on Vivacious 4ply

Vivacious 4ply is 100% Superwash Merino with a high twist and great stitch definition. Available in 100 gram skeins that come with a yardage of 399 yards(365 meters), you can find your local retailer by visiting our stockist list on the website
