Pinspiration: Autumn/Winter wardrobe

I know some of you may still be in the throes of late summer sunshine, but 'ere up north there's definitely a nip in the air. Blackberries have been picked and frozen ready for my first go at jam-making when I have enough empty jars, the evenings are drawing in quicker, and we've had three days of downpours.  Time to pull out the woollies!

Here are a few of my favourite seasonal pins so far- some things to make, some just to admire. Click the caption to go to the pin

Vintage knitting pattern: Date-Maker cardigan | By Gum, By Golly
