Snowflakes in August in Texas!

OK... not really, but when it's over 100 degrees out every day all summer, you want to do light easy fast projects that do not involve lots of wool sitting on your lap. And when you can't seem to focus on any one project for more than 40 minutes, it helps to find projects that can be done in... well... 40 minutes.

I've had a book called "Lacy Snowflakes" with 35 different crochet snowflake designs by Brenda S. Greer and I've been slogging through them. They are fun and fast, but blocking them sure does take a not-so-small ARMY of straight pins. I think I got it out of my system for now and am ready to work on a project I can't finish in one sitting. Back to that humongous pink lace shawl... I guess... :-)

But darn if they aren't fun to make... here they are all blocked and finished...

I might have a short attention span for a single project lately, but that doesn't mean I can't spend two weeks or so stuck in a rut. Nothing to make me excited about working on my old projects again than being DONE with something else.
