Summer's End

Wow, I can't believe that next week will be the end of August!  I've noticed how fast time goes by as you get older.  I don't like it one bit!  Today is pretty cold in southern Ontario, I'm wearing a sweater, and I love it!  I would love to live somewhere that is always cool enough to wear a sweater, but never hot enough to break a sweat.  I was born in December, so my theory is because I'm a winter baby, I don't like the hot weather.  My hubby was born in July and he loves the summer weather, so I guess for our family this theory is true!  As the winter months are quickly approaching, the panic of Christmas is setting in.  I have to start buying gifts so I'm not stuck at the last minute with no money!  I'm trying to finish up all the projects I've got going so I can start making scarves and gloves for friends and family.  I found a pattern for a Queen Anne's Lace scarf that I absolutely love, so I'm going to actually make something for myself.
I also plan on making some matching mittens. I would really love to make a hat to go with the set, but I can't find anything I like yet.  And with two little girls under the age of 3, I have nooooo time to create my own design!

Hooray for the Internet!

My computer has been broken for the last few weeks, and I finally am back on the net!!!  It never occurred to me just how much time I spend on the computer.  But then I noticed how much free time I had!  So in lieu of surfing the web, I of course started a new project lol.  My brother gave me a Monster Ball from phantex for Xmas last year.  I started an afghan and didn't like it, so I frogged it.  And I started looking through my Crochet World magazines.  I found an Infant Aran Hoodie, and fell in love!!  I'm making it for Madison, I've never made clothing before, but so far it's going good.  I'll be sure to post a pic when I get finished!  I have a subscription to this great magazine, and recommend it to everyone!! This is the issue that the hoodie is featured in, you can order this as a back issue from the crochet world website.
