Surprise Fall Edition Mystery Crochet Along

It's that time of year again! The temperature is starting to fall and the leaves are changing from their bright green shades to colors of red, orange, and gold. Children have gone back to school. The smell of fresh, crisp apples are in the air. Many people have begun baking apples pies and canning their vegetables from their garden to save as a winter treat. The squirrels are out picking up the nuts off the ground to store away for the bitterly cold winter that is only a couple months away.

I love the fall time. I love the colors, the smells, and the feel of the cool breeze on my skin. Nothing puts me in a better mood then the fall season. As a result, I've decided to hold a special one day mystery crochet along! Grab your crochet hook and some scraps of yarn and lets get crocheting!
