Happy first day of Fall friends 🙂
If you’re here, you are probably a fan of the cozy life like me, you’re probably a knitter and Fall is probably your favourite season. Am I right?
If I am right, then you don’t need any convincing you can probably skip this one! Or enjoy my round up of all the best Fall things. But if you do need some convincing here is the official Knits of Steele list of proof that Fall is the best season.
I did consider calling this post “The Official Knits of Steele List of Reasons Fall is the Best Season” but it seemed a little long for blog writing best practice…
Listen, I’m a summer baby born in August and even I hate the heat! But freezing Winter, it’s not terrible but all that snow and slush…it gets a person down after a while. Spring is just a bit too wet and mushy with all the melt, and let’s face it no one likes finding all the trash that’s been hidden under snow for months, thawed out dog poop anyone? No thanks!
But Fall? Fall weather is just right, I’m like Goldilocks looking through the bear’s house, but with the seasons. And Fall is my version of Baby Bear’s bed. It’s just cool enough to cozy up in a sweater and a hat and blankets but it’s warm enough that you don’t need to bundle up until you resemble the abominable snowman.
The leaves….of course
Ok so of course everyone’s favourite thing about Fall is the leaves and the colours. I’m just going to gloss on over this one because we all know it – but it had to be on the list.
I mean, a holiday dedicated to eating! Jk we all know the real meaning of Thanksgiving which is to be thankful and get together with family and then eating. But there is nothing like a nice turkey, (I mean I hate turkey, but I know I’ll get hate messages if I say ham so…) some creamy mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans and of course everyone’s favourite – pie! Gotta have both apple and pumpkin of course.
I love love love Halloween! I’m not much of a horror movie fan but for Halloween I’ll watch a couple. And a whole holiday about candy – count me in!
Fall is harvest season and a trip to the farm to pick apples is perfect! Put on some leggings and plaid and a nice knit hat and get some cute pics on the hay wagon. Pick some juicy apples and grab an apple pie on the way out – what’s not to love!?
There is so much more that makes Fall the best but this is my roundup of favourites. If this hasn’t convinced you I’m not sure what will – you’re a lost cause at this point!
I don’t know if it’s the reminders of being a student going back to school, but September and the cool weather always make me feel extra motivated.
For example my blog! I haven’t had much inspiration for the last month or so, but now I’m feeling really motivated to write blog posts and I’ve already pre-written a few for the coming weeks. So if you missed my regular updates don’t worry there is more Knits of Steele content coming your way in the months ahead.
I saved the best for last!
For knitters like me, #sweaterweather is obviously a huge reason why Fall is the best. But in addition to sweaters it’s also time to pull out hats, scarves, wool socks and amazing shawls.
Packing up my sweaters for the season at the end of Spring is like saying goodbye to old friends, but pulling them out again in Fall…it’s like a reunion! As soon as there’s a bit of chill in the air you’ll find me reaching for a knit sweater, even if it is still a bit too warm.
I’m always the person to get weird looks on the train for wearing a hat before it’s even dropped into single digits…at least I was in pre-COVID times when I rode the train to work.
What do you love about Fall? Or what’s your favourite season? Let me know in the comments!
