 I don't know when I've been so glad to see the end of summer. Yes, we're  baskin' in cooler temperatures and downright chilly nights here in the foothills, now....thank the Lord. Isn't this blue black swallow-tail butterfly just darlin'. (I think they ought to mention the blue on it, just sayin'.)
I've been knitting a few pairs of fingerless mitts using this free pattern. Lime green, two-at-a-time on one long circular.
As soon as the green ones were finished I cast on for a purple pair...
and finished them in a few days...what color will she do next,  I hear you ask. Stay tuned to see 'cause I'm still stuck on this pattern. It's easy and quick. ;)
Just exactly how chilly has it been in the foothills? This chili.

Have a wonderfully cool and chilly week, Y'all!
