Be careful! Springing forward in the mist can be dangerous--low visibility!

They're cool. That pattern really works with that color.

Oooooo, purty! I had forgotten about that pattern. I've just acquired my first skein of STR (no, I'm not kidding--don't faint) and that pattern would be perfect for it.
