Crochet Butterfly Necklace

Finally finished this butterfly necklace. It was an unusual project for me but definitely fun.





I can't decide which way I like it best - braided or unbraided, with the butterfly centered or on the side. I didn't do a good job taking pictures. Just took them with whatever I had on today. Boo on lazy me.
It is listed on Etsy, so you can have a look here for more details.

Slashed over-knee socks - yay or nay?

We went to the park downtown with dogs and literally got attacked by mosquitoes! This has been such a rainy nasty-humid spring, these blood-sucking monsters are super happy. Needless to say it was a challenge to take pictures. Dogs were being attacked, too, so they didn't really want to stay calm for a second.

On the positive side, I got to wear out my Amber slashed over-the-knee socks from Trasparenze.
