The Blush List - Colorful Fall + Giveaway Winner

Knitting // Annie Larson uses the best color and pattern combinations for her beautiful knit hats
Crochet // This crochet bobble blanket looks like so much fun to make! All I see is an entire blanket of polka dots. :)
Wishing // These key handle mugs by Gary Birks are so unique. I would definitely cheer up reaching for one of these in the morning. 
Style // Noemie's colorful fall look is so sweet. I love the color combination of her dress and tights. 
Art // I'm ready to pack my bags and move in to this red treehouse illustrated by The Meadow Lark.

Food // Yet another wonderful and warming soup recipe I can't wait to try: roasted butternut squash and apple with walnut cilantro pesto.

I am inspired by bright colors all year long. Even when the darker browns and reds are more seasonally appropriate, I can't help but gravitate toward the eye-catching oranges and chartreuses. No...not just because chartreuse is fun to say. Because it is. Haha.

Anyway, I hope you had a great weekend. I spent the last few days doing some major stress knitting on the sweater I re-started last week. Stress knitting is surprisingly helpful for two reasons: 1.) It keeps me from thinking about all of the things that I think about all the time. Lately I've had a lot going on so it's nice to take a break and concentrate on knitting instead of everything else. 2.) Apparently stress knitting equals fast knitting because I finished the first sleeve in record time. I also started a new book on Saturday, The House at Riverton by Kate Morton, and I really like it so farI've been searching for a new book for weeks and I think I finally found a keeper. Even though my English major days are over I'm not any less of a book lover! What are you reading at the moment? I would love to add some more books to my list.

Enjoy the rest of your day! Here's hoping for a good week ahead.

Also, congratulations Kate on winning the Bottega Vintage gift card giveaway! I will be contacting you  very soon!
