It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Fall

One of my favorite times of year is the beginning of fall. The air smells amazing, cute fall sweaters start appearing in the stores, Saturdays are spent watching OSU football, and pumpkin spice lattes arrive at Starbucks. This week made fall seem suddenly here. OSU football game on Thursday. Check. (Off to a great start with the slaughter of Marshall.) New cute sweater. Check. Pumpkin Spice Latte. Check. Even the leaves are starting to turning even if it is from the lack of rain. So why is Mother Nature taking the weather from low 70's to 90????? Not cool Momma N... not cool. So I guess this is my practice for Florida heat till November.

Normally this is when I'd start knitting again, but I'm coming up against the truth that I won't need scarves, hats, or bulky sweaters. So I have decided that I am going to tackle sweater vests. You can wear a cute sweater vest over a t-shirt with jeans and boots in Florida... or you can't but I will anyways. I am a sweater girl... it's just who I am and Florida won't take that away from me. So... new project.

I thought I'd even change things up and not go with a neutral color like I normally would. So, I'm going with KnitPicks.com Shine Worsted Yarn in Reef.
Not only will I think the color Floridify the look, but I have the yarn already and I can't justify buying new yarn with all the craft projects I have on my to do list.

Also added to my things I'll miss about Indy... the Goodwill stores here. Almost every visit have I walked out with amazing finds. Today was no different and I walked out with a shopping cart full of things for under $20. Sarah found a skirt that was almost exactly like the one from Anthropologie that she has been coveting. $90 for a skirt or $3.99? I don't get why more people don't shop there un-ironically. Anyways I'll share my finds once I'm down in FL and can start my first house project... Halloween Decorations! Halloween is my favorite holiday and I can't wait to start some tasteful decorations :)
