This hat and scarf set is worked up in a lightly variegated orange shade that will match the leaves all around you. The hat is slightly slouchy to provide a cozy fit and the scarf is wide and long enough to be wrapped around your neck. Both pieces are accented by a simple cable that ties the pieces together and makes this set your ideal one for fall.

Pie, made with fresh pumpkin not canned.
Pie! Classic pumpkin pie – with whipped cream.
Neither, I prefer pecan pie of banoffee pie and a cappucino – sorry I’m English so maybe that explains it
Lattes! I like the taste of pumpkin pie, but nothing beats a latte.
Grandma’s Pumpkin pie!
I’ll take a latte over pie any day! Need the caffeine to get all my Christmas knitting done!
Lattes, half sweet with extra whip
PIE only choice for me… love it…
Sorry, but love my up of java and anything choolate
Pumpkin pie–no doubt about it 🙂
Homemade pumpkin pie for sure.
And another vote for pie. Don’t drink coffee or lattes, so that was easy.
I like pumpkin pie
Pumpkin pie. The lattes taste like dried spices to me.
I’m not super fond of the texture of pumpkin pie, so I’d say pumpkin spice lattes. Though I prefer mulling spices to pumpkin spice.
Pie! As much as I like pumpkin pie, I think pumpkin coffee is vile. ::grin::
I much prefer pumpkin pie, but pumpkin spice latte every now and then is a fun treat.
never had any pie, lol.. so definitely the latte
Never had pumpkin spice latte, so have to say I prefer pie- or cookies…
Lattes most definitely
Pumpkin pie! Homemade.
Pumpkin pie is delicious with a ton of whip cream, I like it more than the pumpkin spice lattes… once a year or twice of year type of things though
pumpkin pie of course!
Neither, thanks. Coffee with creamer and apple pie, please. I don’t mind patterns with pumpkin spice, though. 🙂
Pie for sure! Can I get a slice of Pecan too?
