Is it very wrong that my current knitting project

let the smocking commence

seems to be affecting the other non-knitting segments of my daily life?  

such as the café I stumble upon….

Brown Dog Coffee and Frittery, Paris, Ont.

 the beverage I choose….

Hot apple tottie

 and the pastry I eat?

Fresh apple fritters

Cinnamon.  It is the rich colourway of the Swish DK yarn I chose from Knit Picks for my Coraline cardigan.   It is garnishing  my hot apple cider tottie.  It is was sprinkled lavishly over our half dozen freshly made apple fritters. It is haunting my very dreams.

If you ever find yourself in the quaint town of Paris, Ontario. (It has a gigantic Mary Maxim store!), do visit the Brown Dog Coffee Eatery and Frittery (Frittery, I love that word) and do have a fritter.  You will not be disappointed.
