Friday Giveaway -- A Day Late

Hello Cuppers!

I'm sorry for the delay in the giveaway results -- I've got a nasty case of the flu and spent most of yesterday in bed. At least it's not spattergroit!

With no more time wasted, let me present to you the winner of last week's giveaway!

My spellwork reveals the winner:

Crankyangel! Congratulations! Just send me a message on Ravelry with your email and we'll get your pattern out to you!


If you guys are anything like me, you can never find a tapestry needle, or a stitch marker, or your needle gauge, when you need it. So, to keep any other Cupper from the same fate in which I constantly find myself, I'm putting together a mini-first aid for the winner of next week's giveaway! To enter, just leave a comment here, and tell me what your favorite part of fall is!

Love and scales,
theherocomplex

I like the part of fall when the summer heat cools off but the chill hasn't set in yet. That, and looking forward to wearing sweaters again!

My favourite part of autumn is getting back to school/uni. There's nothing like new notebooks, and walking to catch the bus, and filling your head with knowledge. It's the job before the realisation of what you face sets in.

I love the feel of the air, the colors of the leaves, the smell of the harvest....

My absolute favorite part is all the smells!! The air (even here in dessert AZ) it seems to smell like pumpkins and all spice!! (but thst might be cause i have been baking non stop since we were under 100 degrees!

It is the leaves changing color that gets me excited for fall. Less heat (but not frigid cold yet), the ability to wear my Sylvi every day, and the crisp air all help out too, but it's the colors that make autumn my favorite season.

While I love the colors of fall, I do adore it for sweater weather. It's true. It's making me really want to finish the one on the needles, too!

My new favorite part of fall is pulling out all of my hand knit socks and wearing them every day!

Vanessa said...

I absolutely love the changing of the leaves in fall. It's the earth's art exhibition! Plus, then I get to crunch my shoes through them when they fall!

My favorite part of Fall is the changing leaves... we used to go for really long drives along the Mississippi river to enjoy the foliage.

Hope you are feeling better, having the flu is terrible, though as you said, not as bad as spattergroit.

My favorite part of fall is the smell of fires in the air once it starts to get colder. Though, in Texas, that doesn't really happen until "winter," as fall is generally a rather short season here. The scent of wood smoke from fires just gives me a toasty feeling inside, not to mention it's the only smoke that doesn't make me choke to death.

I love the colour changes, and the crispness of the air. You can literally feel the change! Its awesome. Its my favourite time of year. And it makes me want to knit more cardigans and socks :D

Jenn said...

Is it bad if I say the seasonal coffee's at my favorite coffee place? lol. I also love the break in the oppressive heat. I'm a cool weather kind of girl.

The leaves changing. Here in Michigan, we have more trees than people, so early October is so beautiful and colorful!

I like the fact that my ds has his birthday in the Autumn, and it's near enough to Hallowe'en to be able to eat gingerbread and do fun things like apple bobbing at his party. Finally I like the Samhain / Hallowe'en festivals altogether. ooky spooky! Secrettrail from Ravenclaw.

I love the cooler evening air that lends itself to jeans and flannel shirts and light sweaters. I love the smell of leaves and roasted pumpkin seeds.

Stephanie said...

benningsm of ravenclaw! My favorite part of fall.. hmm.. I love apple cider, yea, I know I can get it all year round, but it just tastes better when it's slightly cool during the day (warm enough that I can just wear my tshirt and jeans during the day, but cool enough at night for a sweater). I also love that it means Christmas is almost year (although that's also a bit scary - I have tons of knitting to get done!!)

cattiekins said...

Like many others I love the colour changes and the weather getting cooler (especially after this summers hot and humid time) and figuring out which hand knit socks to wear and which sweaters to pull out and wear.....

MindySue said...

My favorite part of Fall is the changing colors, Leaves falling from the trees, Cooler weather and the wonderful scents as Winter approaches.

Danielle Evans said...

I absolutely love the oak tree that is in my front yard and down the street. They turn beautiful colors and with the crispness in the air, its just beautiful.

My favorite part of fall is after all the leaves on my Liquid Amber tree have turned brown and orange, they then ALL fall off and I have piles of leaves to crunch through!

My favorite part of fall is bonfires! The burning leaves, the warm heat on your face and the cold back. S'mores and hot dogs roasted on a stick! Sitting with family and friends, all huddled together. Enjoying the peaceful fall evening with leaves blowing in the wind.

BrittanyLaine said...

My favorite part of fall is that I can finally wear all of my knitted things. :)

Tricia said...

OMG, great prize! I hope I'm not too late.

My favorite part of fall is the traditional foods... pumpkin bread, apple crisp, mulled cider or wine, and cinnamon with everything!
