Episode 37 of the Podcast – Embroidering autumn leaves, knitting texture and cables, playing with yarn

September's light is magical as always, and with the berries coming out in the hedges I'm inspired to work on more autumnal projects. That means heavier yarns, texture and cables, and lots of warm colours. I'm working on a new cables hat and mitten pattern in my hand-dyed yarn, as well as a couple of other knitting projects, and spend a bit of time embroidering autumn leaves on an old jumper to cover up darned sections.
