Summer Lovin’ Had Me a Blast


Sadly, it seems like summer is almost over, but at the same time it almost feels like it hasn’t begun. I say this because it’s been so rainy here in the Chicagoland area and we haven’t hit the all-time high temperatures like usual. There’s still plenty of time left to make the best of the summer though and have a blast. My plan is to have fun the only way I know how –  the knit and crochet way.

There are so many cute crochet patterns [3] and knitted projects that I want to add to my list of things to work up. Since we have to work fast I won’t waste any more time ranting. Find the best summer vacation beach bum crochet patterns [4] and have at it!
