Enter: Entomology Mitts
As you can see, I didn't make it all the way to the final act. I didn't see any reason to. The floats in this pattern are pretty darn long (which I could have figured out before trying to tackle it, had I had half a brain). Unfortunately, my abilities are still not up to snuff, so the floats make this entire thing pucker six ways from Sunday.
Still, who doesn't love a beetle?
Anyway, back to the grind for me.
