You guys, this week has been CRAZY! Throughout Labor Day weekend, the temperature was in the 90s. Tuesday? It snowed. Yeah, SNOW. It is supposed to stay chilly and fall-like for the next few days, but honestly nothing would surprise me. The weather in Colorado has always been a bit nutty (snow in July is rare, but it happens and isn’t very shocking), but then add the year 2020, and literally NOTHING can shock me now. It did finally give me a reason to wear my Spiral Donut Cowl though!
I hadn't worn it yet because I designed it when the weather was warming up earlier this year, and I am so in love with it! It is the perfect fall cowl as it keeps that chilly wind off of your neck and looks so cute too! (Excuse the lack of makeup- I was just running my kid to work and remembered I should grab a selfie of my Spiral Donut Cowl's maiden voyage)
The great thing about this cold snap is that it is finally getting a fall-vibe around here. I lit my Pumpkin Woods scented candle this morning and am thinking of making a nice butternut squash later this evening. You know what else is great about fall? All of the cute fashions you can make using only yarn and hooks! I have gathered up a whole bunch of fabulous fall fashion crochet patterns to share with you this month.
