New Obsession

I know it's summer and I'm still loving the warm weather, but something has me craving winter. I'm still looking forward to so much about this summer and fall (hello, Oregon in just under 3 weeks!!!)

What I'm craving about winter:
*Hats and Scarfs. I'm really in this knitting mood. Since I don't know how to knit a hat yet, I'll have to crochet some. That's just fine with me!
*Pumpkin cookies... ok just baking in general. The smell of all those yummy spices. MMMM
*Christmas decorations. Christmas is probably my #1 favorite season to decorate for (yes I just called Christmas a season and not a holiday). (and yes, I just ended a sentence with for). Last year we were right in the middle of buying a house, fixing up a house, and moving into a house and therefore left me with no time to decorate a house:(. Now all my decorating love is all bottled up and needs releasing. ***I'm already starting to sing Christmas songs:)***

Here's a blog that I've found today that has only been feeding my new obsession. I'd like her to be my friend and teach me how to knit like she does. Seriously if you go back to her posts from this winter and check out some of the sweaters she has made, she's amazing!!!


  1. Oh my goodness! ME TOO!! I have been craving fall SO much lately! I'm ready for the baking, the smell of all the spices, and the beautiful colors! :)

  2. Hannah i LOVE reading your blog and i hope to see you very soon :)

  3. Too funny! My hubby was humming Christmas songs just the other day! I guess it's Christmas in July!

  4. It took me a few months to figure out how to knit in the round. I would love to help you learn if I'm ever in Louisville. Do you have a ravelry account? You NEEEEED one. There are so many patterns and you can search according to difficulty. There are lots of videos that helped me figure out knitting in the round/making cables. Just google it! Oh and you have to know how to purl. That alone took me months to figure out. I would swear myself off knitting, then the urge would hit and I'd try again.
    I will be making this for the fall/winter! You'll only be able to see the link once you join ravelry. Ok, enough information for you. Wish I lived in Louisville and could teach you tomorrow!!!
