Even here in Sunny Southern California, the air is getting a bit cooler and I can tell that Fall is on it’s way…YAY! Fall is my favorite time of year!!! The cool crisp air makes me want to grab my yarn and hook and crochet like CRAZY now that the long hot summer months are over!!!
If you like this pattern, it’s free with a video at Waves Crochet Afghan.
Fall means it’s time for me to start thinking about Christmas gifts I might want to make for friends and family. I always try to crochet myself a few things along the way too, but that doesn’t always work out, people see what I’ve made and they want to take it.
I also like to start baking again in the fall, when running the oven doesn’t make the house feel like 1000 degrees, Cookies, brownies and breads are my favorites to make.
For many of us, fall also means BACK TO SCHOOL!!!! Next week my two boys Zac, a sophomore and Ben a 6th grader, will be starting a new year of learning and growing.
It’s hard to keep them busy all summer so it’s nice to get back on a more structured schedule. When the stores start putting out the school supplies I sing them a little song to tease them … “Wooohooo Back to School” of coarse they gripe and grumble, but it makes back to school shopping a lot more fun for me LOL 🙂 Back to school time means more time for me to crochet, craft and bake….. That’s what the “Wooohoo” in my song is all about. 😉
Whether you just crochet or add some other hobbies to the mix this fall, I hope you enjoy this lovely time of year. Mikey and I will have some Fabulous stuff coming your way, of coarse. I am working on some themed pattern lists to share with you. We have our Juicy Fruit Afghan Summer Challenge running until Sept 2nd and we will have my “Cathy’s Hook Club Project” announcement after the summer afghan challenge wraps, up just to name a few…. How Exciting!!!
Keep Hooking and I will See you on Facebook ~ Cathy 🙂
