I was skeptical that I would be able to find enough projects to fill up my summer, but boy was I wrong!

Crochet and yarn is not just for wintertime, folks. I have been having a blast working with some fantastic summer yarn. Not only have I enjoyed writing some great summer patterns, I have had the opportunity to work with many yarns that I had never tried before!
