Summer Memories

I was searching for some old photos and stumbled upon this small set of pictures I took last summer of Tinkerbell who had wandered onto the patio while I was tending the garden. She was so suspicious of the plants, at first she wouldn't walk directly up to the plants. Then she discovered that they weren't going to attack her and so she came closer for a better look.
Eventually she determined that they tasted pretty good too.

Luckily, she didn't discover this little guy hanging out in the wet shade.
All of these pictures are causing me to recall all the fond and more importantly warm memories of last summer. I am so ready for this winter to be done!

Experimenting with Gloves

I'm experimenting with fingerless mittens this week. I've never made mittens before though I once attempted gloves. The gloves, however, were a fiasco and I swore off crocheting gloves forever. Fingerless mittens sounded like it would be a breeze because you get to leave the most complicated part out: the fingers. And it is a breeze. The problem is, I love this yarn so much I don't want to list the mittens on my etsy page! And while it's still a work in progress, I'm almost certain I will be wearing these this spring and I'll just have to make another pair to list for sale later!
