Icy Bling for Warm Climes

Crocheted this up and wore it with a white shirt and white shimmery eyeshadow for my first day of holiday shopping, humming "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" even though it was 82 degrees. Had worn its prototype to the CGOA conference and Deanna vanAssche said, "WILMA FLINTSTONE!!" and so we did a deal and she took it home. Made another, wore it to my son's school, and all the third-grade girls were mesmerized and asked if they were real (I said yes....). Made another with red and green crystal drops, and my neighbor, Kathy, took that one home.

I MISS SNOW! It's HOT here. I'm sorry to complain but it's been summer all year. People here are actually getting heatstroke and heat exhaustion. I have to remind myself to drink enough water. We need the A/C on to be able to sleep at night.

I have some mighty-fine alpacas, merinos, and cashmeres in my yarn stash but am nowhere near able to enjoy crocheting them or wearing them. I keep eyeing the linens and cottons.

Anne blogged the best list I've ever read of what is lovable about snow. I grew up in Wisconsin and her list brought back memories!


  1. No fair tormenting us, Vashti, with your 82 degrees, and how much you hate it! And then teasing us with those great looking bracelets! (Remember your mentor! Hint hint.) :-)

    Ah, Vashti, if you want to see pics of ice and snow and frost, you need to check my blog! LOL!
    We have had the most incredibly beautiful frost - I can't remember it ever being so gorgeous.
    And, you are right.... 82 degrees is just wrong for this time of year!
    Happy New Year!
