Sweater Weather Tag

I was tagged by Lindsey at Nightowl Knit & Crochet the other day. So, here goes!

  • Favorite candle scent? With a toddler, two cats and a wifey with asthma, I don’t get to light too many candles! But I am partial to the Pacifica line–most of their scents are really lovely.
  • Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate? If I have to choose just one, coffee. But I like all three.
  • What is the best fall memory you have? My daughter’s birth almost three years ago.
  • Best fragrance for fall? I don’t think I’m trendy enough to rotate fragrances with the seasons!
  • Favorite Thanksgiving food? Stuffing
  • What is autumn like where you live? I like to call it “that two weeks every year when the temperature is above freezing but there’s little to no humidity”
  • Most worn sweater? A blue, white and grey argyle dealy I got a few years ago.
  • Football games or jumping in leaf piles? Leaf piles. It’s much safer.
  • Favorite type of pie? Blueberry
  • Which makeup trend do you prefer, dark lips or winged liner? In my teenage goth days, I’d have said eyeliner, hands down. Now I’m not so into makeup.
  • What song really gets you into the fall spirit? The rustling leaves
  • Is pumpkin spice worth the hype? No. It’s good and all, but I don’t go overboard.
  • Favorite Fall TV Show? I’m honestly not sure what constitutes a fall TV show. I did just watch the first few episodes of The Daily Show (new host–Trevor Noah). Does that count?
  • Skinny jeans or leggings? I’m more of a baggy and/or boot cut jeans kinda guy. I know–not trendy at all.
  • Combat boots or Uggs? Flip flops for as long as possible, then something easy to slide on quickly.
  • Halloween – Yay or Nay? I think it’s fun, but I don’t go all out (can you tell I’m sort of a moderate person?)
  • Fall mornings or evenings? Evenings. I am not a morning person at any time of year!
  • What do you think about Black Friday? I think it’s a shame people have gotten trampled in the name of shopping.
  • One Fall 2015 Trend You Love: Cool weather, beautiful foliage, prime knitting time! Just to prove it, here’s a sneak peek at my latest WIP:


So I’m clearly not the most conventional person, but hey…I am what I am πŸ™‚ To go even further against the grain, I am almost always hot so I rarely wear sweaters (although I do like them). I will say that I’ve been wearing my Drachenfels every day since the weather got cooler! Please consider yourself tagged if you feel so inclined!

    Some of those were fun questions to answer. This new WIP looks like a mitt with animal fiber in it.
