I’m not a big fan of flavoured coffees, but I do like to top them off with a sprinkle of cinnamon. So, when I saw Pumpkin Spiced Latte at Starbucks last weekend, I thought I’d give it a go. The idea is wonderfully seasonal, but the reality was rather unpleasantly disappointing. Too sweet and too many ‘artificial’ tastes competing in one cup for me, I’m afraid. I wish I had liked it, but it’s back to the plain latte for me.
As for favourite knitting projects – I think socks are my favourites. I always have a pair on the go between (and as well as) larger projects. I love the fineness of fingering yarns – particularly merinos – and really enjoy seeing how a multicoloured yarns knits up.
