I know. It's still technically summer. So I will simply offer up some nice pictures of crochet goodness. Absolutely no mention of the c-word.
With the exception of the cream one,they are all made with Rico's Maxi cotton. It's in stock now and I am loving the subtle vintage-y shades. The cream one is a ball of Aida by Anchor that I dug out of the stash. Oh man! 20 count cotton. There's a lot of work in that one little bauble!
