Maybe it was the quick visit to Canada that got me inspired, but this week I finally got around to entering one of Spoonflower's weekly design challenges. The theme for the week was "Fall Leaves", and here's my entry.

I just missed the best of the autumn colours in Canada by a couple of weeks, but it was still really beautiful there. Amy, my sister, is living with her husband and little boy, in a small town outside Ottawa. On the last day I was there, we rugged up against the cold and went to the Eardley escarpment to get the best view of the countryside. When I say cold, it was probably as cold as it ever gets on a Melbourne winter's day 7–9ºC (45ºF). I just can't imagine what it's going to be like there in winter.
Espace Tricot. They had a large selection of yarn, as well as patterns, accessories, etc. Amy and I spent quite a while deciding what to buy.
Sweet Georgia. She's knitting up a little cardigan with it at the moment – this is her test swatch. I just love the colour variation in this don't you?
