A sneak peek of another new colorway debuting at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival, and thereafter online: Hot Buttered Rum. This color has been on my mind for a couple of weeks, and I knew I had to get it onto some yarn in time for Autumn.
Hot Buttered Rum is one of my favorite winter drinks and, with today the first official day of Autumn (yay!), I’m really looking forward to warm drinks, fires in the wood stoves, crackling leaves, hot apple cider, and sweater weather!
Because it’s not exactly cocktail-o-clock yet, I’m currently enjoying a cup of a new tea I just received from Adagio, called Bonfire. Talk about Autumn in a cup! It smells divine, and tastes wonderful (and, caffeine-free, so it’s perfect for the afternoon). It’s a blend of honeybush, hazelnut, cocoa nibs, aniseed, cinnamon, clove, orange peel, apples, rose hips, lapsing, and red peppercorn. Yes, autumn in a cup :-).
Finally, a recipe for a traditional Hot Buttered Rum. I am so ready for Autumn! Happy First Day of Fall!
