Mittens! (and a praying mantis)

Hey look! It's knitting that you haven't seen before!

hello there

That happens to be the beginning of a Druid Mitten (ravelink) in Dream in Color Gaia. The color is Blue Lagoon (or as I like to think of it, *cue creepy voice* Bloooooooooooo Lagoooooooooooon). The yarn looks gorgeous, but it feels surprisingly unremarkable for a merino. This may explain why they discontinued it.

While I was outside this evening photographing the aforementioned mitten, I may have run into one of my mantis friends. The wee buglettes hang out on my morning glories, which are right next to the little front patio where I take a lot of my progress photos (which explains why I'm constantly taking pictures of them). It was starting to get a little dark, so I decided to use the flash. I think I may have pissed him off.
