Oh man, what a time we live in! On average, 2016 has been shenanigans of the highest order. I’m writing this in the middle of an 8 day window that includes Halloween, the World Series (I live in Chicago, for context), and this godforsaken presidential election season’s end. Doesn’t this collage of pretty, somehow pastel-despite-it-being-fall-but-it-works yarn craft inspiration just make you smile? If 2016 has taught us anything, maybe it’s the value of taking a step back to enjoy the simple things in life. (Like pastel fall crafts – I can’t get over LOVING this would-be contradiction!)
