Fall has Arrived!

Well, fall hasn't arrived technically. But it was delivered to my door today when the new Scentsy September Warmer and Scent of the Month arrived!! The warmer is a beautiful, elegant pumpkin in cream with a silvery bronze stem on top. It has lovely detailing, very reminiscent of Cinderella's carriage. And the scent.....Coconut Pumpkin Pie!! The perfect fragrance to usher in fall with cooler temps and falling leaves. These will officially be on sale on September 1st, but I will be taking pre-orders now. The orders will be submitted on the 1st, so you will be among the first to receive it and begin your fall decorating! And don't forget...scents and warmers of the month are 10% off during the month.

And speaking of scent of the month, would you like to receive a new scent of the month bar before it's release? If you join my Scent of the Month Club, you will receive a full size bar each month delivered right to your door! For more info on this, or any Scentsy products, just email me at jan@knitscents.com!

And now, on to the knitting!! This past weekend, to honor a dear friend's birthday, our knitting group took a special lesson in brioche knitting. Can I say I'm addicted?? The instructor wisely kept us to one color brioche to start, but I'm so excited to progress to Laura Nelkin's new Mouette  Scarflette pattern!! The kit and pattern was part of Laura's M Club, which I've been a member of for the last 2 years, and already looking forward to year 3! Here's a pic of my beginning:

And a pic of Laura's pattern Mouette Scarflette:

I'd be a lot farther along on the cowl if I hadn't, yet again, signed on for deadline knitting!! Please...please, please, please...if you hear me mention doing Camp Loopy again next summer feel free to remind me of the tension and pressure I'll experience by the end of August! My progress on the Featherweight Cardigan has been slow, and if I don't pick it up soon...well....it will probably end up in UFO heap (growing by leaps and bounds!!!). I'm working on the first sleeve and it's not at all hard, but I'm dreading the collar and front. All those picked up stitches!! I think I'd rather pick up dust bunnies!! No. I'm sure I'd rather ;) Eleven days left so wish me luck!!

Have you all heard about Periscope? It's a social media site where you can watch or broadcast live; people can ask you questions and comment as you broadcast. Well, you know I had to give it a try!! Now, I'm no social media maven, so the fact that I was able to navigate the site at all was a miracle. (I've been trying to figure Twitter out for years!!) But, I was able to do a live video!!! There were some glitches which I won't even attempt to figure out, but there was no phone, dog or kid screaming in the background. Miraculous!! Wanna see??

I must be on a real roll, 'cause I'm stunned I was able to get the video on here. For more live antics, follow me over on Periscope!! (I'm janelinrn over there too!!) Might be interesting to share some of what goes on here live! Otherwise, who'd believe me??

And now, until next time,
hugs and love,
Jan
