After a record setting day of 90 degrees around Wednesday of this week, I was so glad to wake up Thursday to actual cooler temperatures. This fall has been so warm, dry, and not fun. I mean, I have a lot of crocheting to do for Christmas. I need cooler weather for motivation.

After having a dry crochet spell in October, I will most likely be cutting back my Christmas crochet plans. It is probably for the best anyway as I really want to give some craft shows a try in 2011. This will give me time to get that project started before the end of the year.

Right now I think I will crochet simple Christmas gifts like chapstick holders, amigurumis, and cup holders. Leave the hats, blankets, and other projects for birthday gifts.
