I've found that for now at least, I do really well in crocheting if I alternate projects.  Right now, I'm alternating between building up my fingerless glove stock (in preparation for fall and winter), and making up more of the halter dresses that I've been working on, though whether those dresses will be for sale in the etsy shop or for gifting, I haven't decided for sure yet.

I've also found that as I alternate, it's always fun to change things up a little bit and try new color combos, etc.

So, a bit ago I ventured out from my usual creme/gray/black color scheme for fingerless gloves, and made some in a cornflower blue.

I'm fairly pleased with how they've turned out.
