Summer = small crochet projects

Summer crochet projects by Little Monkeys Designs

One summer I crocheted a King size wool blanket for our bed. Never again! At least not in the summer! Not sure what I was thinking except that I really wanted to finish my winter blanket. It was a little warm crocheting it, even sitting in the AC and under a fan!!
