I’m extremely behind writing up about my 100 cups of coffee project, most of these coffees were back in October.
Ling was testing out a new base yarn for her Whimzy yarn collection and asked me if I would knit her up a sample for a knitting show in November. I picked a really simple pattern which I managed to knit up in several afternoons – all fuelled by lots of coffee.
For the final episode of The Great British Bake-Off (that seems so long ago), we continued our tradition of having cakes whilst watching TV, once again I was too busy to bake so I popped to the local American bakery for some brownies and cheesecake. They have this amazing counter – which is extremely instagrammable.
Most the time I have coffee whilst working or when out with friends, but occasionally, I have a coffee on my own. Then I like to sit in Starbucks on an autumn afternoon with a pumpkin spiced latte and people watch.
One of the great things about having the Starbucks app is early access to the “Holiday” drinks, this was my first gingerbread latte of the season – before the red cup became so newsworthy. Normally I don’t like cream on my drinks – but the new gingerbread cream was amazing!
Red cup season also marks the end of pumpkin spice latte season ☹️, time for me to put away my pumpkin cozy for another year. BTW, I am slowly adding these cozies to my Folksy store.
