Well, friends, we made it. Through long, hot summer days, we have arrived at my favorite season: fall. I think many knitters (and people in general) love fall for so many reasons: the more agreeable temperatures, the beauty of the trees as they change colors, and (of course) the arrival of seasonal hot drinks that are so easy to cozy up with. I revel in fall for all of these reasons and also because it signals the return of sweater weather - not only for the wearing of sweaters but for the knitting of them as well.
I've noticed myself bringing out the same things each time I sit down to knit. I revel in my time knitting when I have surrounded myself with these things. Lately, my knitting sessions have been elevated and I want to share with you the things that have been making me happy this fall!
First up is Sweet Harvest Pumpkin tea from Celestial Seasonings. I make myself a mug and add a dash of French Vanilla creamer to really make this an indulgent treat. I find that this tea isn't overly pumpkin-y or sweet like some holiday beverages can get. And the fact that I can buy this at my local Sprout's makes this a favorite I can turn to again and again.
The second thing on my list of favorites is this candle that I snagged from Denver shop Candelaria. This is a soy wax candle in a scent called "Fallen Leaves," which is a comforting blend of apples, berries, and pecans. It came with a Jack-o-lantern coaster but the scent is so cozy, I still love burning it in the evenings!
My last fave that I want to share with you is my new project bag from Box Eleven. Box Eleven is a Denver-based company that makes "small batch wearables" hand-printed with original designs. Katie, the owner and maker behind Box Eleven, created these bags with knitters in mind - there are even lots of pockets on the inside!
I have been enjoying knitting out of this bag since I got it in October. It's the perfect size to toss in my bag for knitting on the bus or just to sit in my lap as i watch TV and knit on my sweater.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of these things that have been making my making so great these last weeks. Leave a comment below and let me know - what are some of your fall faves?
