Pumpkin on my mind...

Autumn...it's my absolute favorite time of year. I love the leaves changing color on my huge maple tree right outside my front window. I love seeing pumpkins everywhere and smelling seasonal scented candles of cinnamon and spice. Now that I work at the best tea shop in the country, SereneTeaz, I love drinking our Cinnamon Toffee tea, and our Harvest Chai Mate and our Pumpkin Harvest tea. I'm also concentrating my love of the season into my knitting styles. Here are a few of them:

Autumn Knit Pumpkin Capelet

Chunky Spice Orange Cowl

Pumpkin Cabled Hat

And here is an easy Spiced Apple Cider recipe to warm you up this season:
1 bottle Apple Cider (64oz.)
3 cinnamon sticks
1 teaspoon whole allspice
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1/3 cup brown sugar
Directions: In a large pot or a slow cooker, combine apple cider and cinnamon sticks. Wrap allspice and cloves in cheesecloth, tie up and add to pot. Stir in brown sugar. Bring to boil and then keep warm until serving time.
Enjoy!
