1. What is this KAL/CAL? - Shop

Autumn is here! My favourite season, full of swirling leaves in rich russets and golds, toadstools and acorns, pumpkins and pine cones!  Foxes and owls, evening sightings of deer in the fields and squirrels gathering their winter hoard.  

The colours are rich and tonal and we too can start cosying up ready for winter.

So Locket's Autumnal Knit-a-long/Crochet-a-long has been born!  Throughout September and October let's join together to knit, crochet and cook wonderful autumnal treats with the chance to win a prize at the end!
