>A few projects…

>I have a few projects in the works at the moment.  They are going much slower than normal but I am progressing.  Look for the pattern of two of these fingerless mittens in early October (on the right side) they will be free patterns.  The other (green and yellow)is a pattern that someone else has on Ravlry.  The green and yellow wool is some I Kool-aid dyed over the summer with my girls.  My oldest daughter picked out the yarn for this project she liked the yellow and green together.
