Well, Hello Summer!

Faithful readers...I haven't deserted you. My work life has been incredibly busy as it always in the summer. I only have one more week of events and then just a few special events for teens and older kids while I recoup from the madness that is summer reading at a public library.

I did go through a huge crocheting slump since my last update in late May. Not sure why...tiredness, lack of interest.

I've picked up my hook again and I'm working on squares for a pastel baby afghan. I've also made a few bookworms and dishcloths. I also have some coasters I was commissioned to make, but they aren't really striking my fancy at the moment.

Yarn is on clearance at Wal-Mart. Although the term clearance is debatable as the price per skein of Red Heart Super Saver is at a record high of $2.88. I bought a few skeins the other day on clearance: Cornmeal, Plum Pudding, and Shaded Browns. Red Heart Super Saver has 6 new colors. I'm impatiently waiting for them to make an appearance at my store. Three solid colors: Flame, Jade, & Rogue. Three Variegated Colors: Icelandic, Bright Mix, & Mulberry Mix.

Interestingly, Bright Mix reminds me of Anna from Frozen and Icelandic reminds me of Elsa. Coincidence? I don't know, but Frozen is extremely popular.

Until next time, happy crocheting!
