Indian Summer

6 Comments

Put that winter coat back in the closet and turn off the radiator before you melt – There’s been a streak of warm weather breaking through the area! Despite the fact that just yesterday there was frost thriving upon outdoors plants and roof tops, today I went outside wearing a short skirt and t-shirt without any discomfort! Admittedly, I have a fairly high tolerance for cold, but anyone around these parts will agree that the weather has been unseasonably mild for this time of year. I’m just as anxious as anyone to see the snow come down in fluffy white clumps, but I can relent for a bit while the sun is still so determined to prolong this summery climate. In any event, it gives me an excuse to break out the [soy] ice cream again!

I had some of my own plans brewing to make a similar frozen treat out of yarn, but Eva beat me to it! I’m not upset though – Her pattern is much better than what I could have even hoped to achieve. Everyone that saw it was impressed with how accurate it looked for something made of yarn.

With such a flawless guide to produce my faux ice cream cone, the hardest part was choosing a flavor. After a quick survey of the most appropriate colors available for the task, I settled on mint chocolate chip, complete with little bugle-bead “chocolate” pieces.

Luckily this makes a very small serving, so when the weather decides to turn frigged again without a moment’s notice, I won’t be stuck with gallons of ice cream for the next six months!
