I'm not the biggest fan of the colder weather, but there are some great perks to Fall! The first (and possibly best) is pumpkin flavored everything! I LOVE all the pumpkin desserts in the Fall. The other day I made super yummy pumpkin spice hot chocolate. That stuff was like pumpkin pie in a cup! Except with a bit of chocolate taste. I got mixed reviews from my family though (some thought it was too pumpkin-y). I thought it was the best hot beverage I've ever had. I've also tried Decaf Pumpkin Spice tea from Stash. Great fall tea, but not as strong of a pumpkin flavor as I had hoped for. I've got a whole list of pumpkin recipes I'm waiting to try this fall!
Okay this post is getting to be a little too much about pumpkin than I had anticipated. The next great thing about fall is the scarves and hats and gloves! I love making them and I get more in the mood to make more when it's cold outside. I probably have around ten WIPs right now, and that's just counting the scarves, hats, and gloves! It's bad. I need to finish them. I have a tendency to get overly excited about new yarn and I just HAVE to do something with it as soon as I get it. So I end up putting off unfinished projects so I can work with my new yarn. I actually do have a couple (adorable) chunky infinity scarves to photograph and get in the shop. Also hats. I have hats I need to photograph, too.
My last, but not least, favorite thing about Fall is the colors. I get so inspired by the changing colors of the leaves. One of my in-progress chunky infinity scarves has beautiful red, brown, and gold tones. It's like a wearable pile of colorful fall leaves. Okay actually don't think of it like that. It's way more comfy than dry, crunchy, fallen leaves.
I promise I'm going to work very hard to get my chunky infinity scarves in the shop so you guys can see them! They really are great. I just hope my photography skills will be good enough to capture their brilliance.
