It’s the first Friday of a new month and you know that that means – a special edition of TGIF!
Thinking about … plans for cool weather making and pairing cropped sweaters with fuller bottoms. I honestly have no idea how this look will look on me, but I’m willing to give it a try. And layering a sweater over a dress seems like a great way to stretch a fall/spring piece into winter. Like why didn’t I think of this before?!
Grateful for … the opportunity to celebrate my niece’s birthday yesterday with a full table of family-who-are-friends.
(also for my sister’s amazing baking skills and tres leches birthday cake with blackberries)
Fun … my mom and I are going to be traveling again soon … as in we leave September 19. We are headed to Montreal for a 12-day cruise around Newfoundland. This will be my longest cruise (thankfully, my mom is a cruise veteran; she and my dad have spent weeks on board before!) and I am looking forward to exploring new places during the day while my bags are unpacked and I’m sleeping in the same bed every night … not to mention Canadian Autumn, sweater weather!!, fine dining, and a field trip to Espace Tricot. I will certainly be wearing my new pullover (it’s blocking!) although maybe not quite as stylishly as Melissa debuted hers yesterday. and if the knitting gods continue to smile on me, I’ll have a new cardigan, too. I’m going to swatch just as soon as press Publish on this post.
I hope you’re looking forward to something new – and fun! – this month – please share in the comments … and have a wonderful weekend!
