I love this project of Bloomsbury Swirl (below) by Liz Baltesz with colour combinations inspired by London’s Autumn berries and skies.
The yarn is all hand dyed by Liz using various plants including madder, dahlia, marigold, tansy, goldenrod and weld for the flower motifs and indigo for the backgrounds and short rows.
Liz teaches natural dyeing and colour work knitting at wild and woolly in Hackney if you’re interested in finding out more.

Some more Autumnal and Wintry colour inspirations:
