Have a great day!
I too am looking forward to the mild days of fall!

I have my inventory tonight so I work this evening and tomorrow evening, but I have this upcoming weekend off so 2 nights in one week is fine with me. Our local orchard opens for business this Saturday, my wife wants to go there and see if they have a Halloween tree to decorate in the house for October, she has been wanting one for a few years now, and after Labor Day it is free game to start decorating for Fall/Harvest/Halloween.


Have a great day!!!
last day of summer vacation, that has such a fall ring to it! Yes, we must get started on the fall decorating, the pumpkins should be coming on the market soon. Of course, we are still at the tail end of peaches and watermelons, so will have to wait until they are all done first.

Speaking of fall colors, I bought a skein of Red Heart Fall (0981) variegated yarn and Red Heart Grape Fizz (3931) yesterday to do a test piece of each to see if I liked those colors. The Grape Fizz is jeweled tone. I want to make an afghan for Lily (my granddaughter). Her favorite color is purple, so I think she will like it. I will do a ripple along the lines of what we discussed regarding the rainbow variegated.

I was going to copy and paste a pic, but I am on my iPad and don't know how to do that without the Control key.
my SIL says I should start by learning to do granny squares...need to find some yarn first. I found at 4.0 crochet hook, is that the right size or should I go and buy something else?

If you're using medium weight (worsted weight) yarn, a 5.0mm hook (U.S. size H) might be easier to work with. A 4.0mm hook works better with a thinner yarn (sport weight). (Seawaters, correct me if I'm wrong!)
