Magical Latte Art

A strange, new occurrence is taking place most mornings. Some unimaginable force is affecting my morning latte to create this magical latte art that doesn’t disappear as I drink it!

How Strange This Magical Latte Art

Many of you know that I make and drink a latte every morning. I attempt some pretty design in my latte each morning as well.  This is about as good as my latte art gets.

Normally, with the first or second sip of my morning beverage, the latte art is destroyed.  But now each morning, this is happening:

The art continues to the bottom of the cup.  What mystical magic is this?

I have recently changed my espresso bean with which I make my latte. But I’d prefer to blame the latte fairies for this joy that lasts to the “last drop.”

Suffice it to say, if I make shitty latte art, this lasting joy isn’t quite as nice.

Current Knitting

After power-knitting through the two sides of the Fight On Project Bag, I needed a break from that project for a day or two.  I didn’t really want to face embroidery right now.

So, I started two new neck accessory projects.

I redoubled my efforts on the twice-failed “Little Hearts Wrap” I tried starting last week.

This yarn is bright and has a perfect drape for this meshy, textured fabric.

I’ve found generous use of stitch markers is helping me in two ways. First, I concentrate better on keeping the pattern correct. Second, if I make a mistake (which I haven’t made any yet), the stitch markers will make it easy to find and correct my error. I hope.

I also started a new Interlocking Crochet Scarf project.

This one is slightly different. It’s being done as a circular scarf.  A seemingly minor change like that to the design is causing it to be a lot more complex to make. But I am liking how the different leftover yarns are working up in this new garment.

I’m also thinking the circular scarf will sell easily if I ever attend another craft show in the future.
