The smell is roasted popcorn goodness but the taste is unfortunately lacking. I was hoping for something buttery, but the flavor here is watery instead. Maybe I used too little leaf or maybe it’s just too old, not sure.

Ahh… the weekend. Lazing about on the couch with my tea and my knitting, watching Casper.

I’m starting on knitted Christmas gifts for my family. I’ve decided this year to just knit several things that I would want to keep, then put them in one combined box to send to my mother, sister, and grandmother (who are always together for Christmas morning) and let them each choose which items they want. So I’ve just started on the first thing – a herringbone stitch hat in lovely autumnal colors. ❤

This tea is from my swap with ashmanra.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a plain ol’ genmaicha. I’m not sure why, it’s one of my favorite types of tea. This one is simple but tasty. I can’t taste the green tea much – it does have a bit of a dry autumn leaf flavor though. Mostly it’s sweet and toasty rice, which I like very much. I’m getting a bit of an oat flavor too, which makes it taste a bit like a very lightly sweetened granola.


Flavors: Autumn Leaf Pile, Oats, Sweet, Toasted Rice

I just saw herringbone stitch and linen stitch last night on Pinterest. I am very interested in doing some tea towels in linen stitch. Herringbone is beautiful but may be above my skill level.

This will be be first time doing Herringbone Stitch. It seems fairly simple, it’s basically just doing k2tog but then leaving the second stitch on the left needle, then repeat. I’ll let you know! ;)
