Saturday Sampler: Welcome Fall!

Rhinbeck Sheep and Wool Festival

It's September, and it's currently cold enough in my house to be wearing handknit socks, so I declare it fall (nevermind that we're supposed to get back up into the 80s next week). Let's welcome in our favorite season, shall we?

We start with one of these:

 Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks

(Almost bought one yesterday, but it wasn't quite cold enough.)

Then we add one of these:

Dogfish Head Punkin Ale . . . lots of great pumpkin ales, but this one is THE BEST. And it was cold enough for one last night.

Maybe we cook up some of this:

And then the knitting begins!

Clearly, we need this:

French Braid Main

French Braid Cardigan, by Tanis Lavallee

Definitely, this:

Atmos Cardigan

Atmos Cardigan, by Hilary Smith Callis

 Have to warm the baby up too:

Beatrix, from the Kelbourne Woolens Baby Collection

And let's keep our heads warm too:


Hugs and Smooches, by yours truly.

As a special fall celebration, you can get the Hugs and Smooches hat for $3.99, through the month of September!
