Contest #3

I'll have to agree with everyone who gave a bad review to the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. You hear so many people raving about it this time of year, but I just find it gross, even with half the syrup. I don't think I'm a fan of Starbucks in general though. Their coffee tastes burnt, and they mask it with sickeningly sweet syrups. I won't be going back to Starbucks for that again.

As for knitting, I've been loving socks for over a year now and I've made around 20 pairs, but I've recently started lace knitting which I like even more. There's something about turning very fine yarn into something delicate and excquisite, that can also keep you warm. Now that I have the time to do it, lace is my favorite thing to knit. I've only knit lace for myself so far, but I would like to make something nice for my mom. So far my favorite lace yarn is Handmaiden Sea Silk. It's gorgeous to knit with and blocks beautifully. Here are my two latest lace projects.

Oh, my all-time-favorite Pumpkin Spice Latte is really getting a bad rap here today. I will drive out of my way to find a Starbucks at this time of year. But, maybe it's good it's getting a bag rap...leaves more for me!
