Yesterday was a Happy Mail Day — I got my Autumn mystery box from Chestnut Hills Farm and Fiber! I ordered a while back and honestly had forgotten what the inspiration was (it was a photo of hay bales and pumpkins on a truck), so this whole box was a delightful surprise.
Guys, LOOK at that yarn! It’s stunning. I’m not usually a big fan of orange but for some reason I find this skein absolutely gorgeous. It’s dyed by Laughing Cat Fibers and it’s non-superwash, which sometimes I find not quite as soft but not this time. This feels so good and I’m already so inspired to cast on a little shawl that the yarn is already wound! I’ve chosen a pattern called Autumn Falling, which is free on Rav, and yes I will be casting on as soon as this blog post is done.
But there was more in the box! An adorable pumpkin sticker, a stitch marker necklace with sparkly coffin stitch markers dangling from a half-moon (from Gloomy Erina) , some pumpkin spice coffee, and a pumpkin spice latte lip balm which has a subtle fragrance and feels really nice.
This box had such good autumn vibes. Now if only our weather would cooperate! Happy Saturday, friends.
