The hot days of summer are finally over and autumn has arrived in our corner of south-eastern Australia.
There could not be a better time for taking up knitting!
Our variable autumn weather with it's mixture of warm and cool days and cooler evenings requires knitwear that is comfortable, soft and light yet able to keep us warm when temperatures drop outside.
