Part of me doesn't want to say it but summer is essentially over. Next week I'll be an official university(!) student.

Before I get sappy, let me show you what I'm working on. I've been working on it for a while actually. I just haven't sat down and put a concerted effort in. They are the "Elegant Fingerless Gloves" in Crochet One-Skein Wonders. I'm not sure if the thread and hook I'm using are right for it. The pattern calls for me to do a few more rows before adding the individual fingers but I think I'm going to stop where I am. Round 13.

I take photographs. There are a lot of photos gathering virtual dust on my computer and on my phone and I have a hard time deleting things. That's why I take to my blog to share them - or at least have them on record. I'm thinking of making this a sort of feature on my blog. That's why I have three working titles.

1) Life in Colour
2) Caught on Film (but no one uses film anymore)
3) Focus

I'm partial to the first and the last. But that's inconsequential.

For those who don't know, I spent the last two years at a boarding school in Massachusetts. Up until last month, Deerfield was basically my life and now another school is coming to take it's place. I felt so many feelings over the past two years but now my instant reaction to the "Deerfield" is to smile. I guess despite all the late nights and long phone calls for advice, my memory of DA is overwhelming positive. And I'm happy about that. I'm happy that my time there is done and I'm even happier that I get to visit every now and then.

Enough with all the talking. Let's see some pictures.

I said I'd write again and here it is. One finished project and two in the works.

1. Magic Carpet

I'm not sure about the name but "right-angle-weave pendant with macrame straps" is a bit of a mouthful. I made another of these. I made a matching ring as well. It has flown off my hand twice and I've almost lost it once. Safe to say I'm not going to wear it for now. Last thing to note, these metallic beads never show up the way I'd like them to in pictures. The colours aren't as vivid as they really are. That's why I have a blurry picture - I think it shows the colours better.
