Rabbit Petunia Wins A Million Dollars

American's Got Talent (AGT) finale last night reveals the million dollar winner: The Rabbit!

OK, OK, it's not really the rabbit but rabbit Petunia's ventriloquist Darci Lynn, 12 years old,  who won the top prize at AGT.  Rabbit Petunia certainly helped; Petunia was used for audition,  Petunia was used in the final performance and Petunia was with Darci Lynn all the way to the million dollar top prize. 

Rabbits are good luck charms, good performers, and good companions, we sure all agree to that.  Congratulations to Darci Lynn and Petunia.

Tucking in the Loose Ends

It's pretty to have different colors on one piece of garment, do you know what the wrong side looks like?  
On the right is the right side of one fingerless mitten with three colors, black, coral and chestnut agouti.  On the left is the wrong side of the other mitten with all the loose ends hanging.   Each color adds a few loose ends, there are lots of loose ends to be tucked in.   How do you tuck in the loose end?   Use a crochet hook needle to hide the each one of them.


On the left it still shows the wrong side of the fingerless mitten but all the loose ends are hidden, this process is called "tucking in the loose ends". 


Turn the wrong side over to the right side, now the pair of the fingerless mitten is done.
