... and what a summer it turned out to be.
Story continues below,
I just want to show of my last creation first.
These are my last half mittens,
They were created and worked
with a cast on my hand,
slowly, row by row...
Within the first weeks of summer,
I slipped on my kitchen floor

the way to go...
Have a great day
and be careful out there!
