Coming off the end of my crochet hook

It snowed here earlier this week, so of course I started crocheting snowflakes.  It’s going to be a cooooollllllddd Hallowe’en!  We are actually having a bit of a reprieve before the next storm comes through.   You know, I’ve been doing the math; our last snowfall of last winter was in early-mid June.  Our first snow …
