With autumn fast approaching it will soon be time to put those summer clothes back into storage, if indeed you had a chance to wear any of them.
Comforting, warm and always an autumn favourite, wool knits are in huge demand this year.
And as more and more people pick up knitting needles for the first time, a huge range of innovative products are available to buy.
In keeping with the current craze for all things owl-related, this Donna Wilson vintage owl cushion, available in John Lewis, £69, is simply cute.
And for something a little bit different, Galashiels-based Eribe Knitwear (www.eribe.co.uk) sells fantastic knitted products including this funky Scottie Dog keyring for just £14.50.
