Then there is the birds nest that has been built in our roof awning. There actually are teeny weenie baby birds now but I could never get a picture with their little heads sticking up!
And finally, the water snake we saw in our pond!!! Pretty cool, eh?
So far our wildlife count includes water snake, turtles, scorpions, honey bees, geese, songbirds, herons, bass, brim, minnows (all in our large pond) frogs, toads and about a billion tadpoles in our small pond.
We are loving it so far! I bet you guys are all wondering by now if I really even know HOW to knit since I haven't posted any knitting in so long. I simply have not had the time lately and I can't seem to get my needles, yarn, roving, wheel, patterns and body all in the same location to get anything started. My goal is to get ALL my fiber supplies up at the new place this week because I am really itching to get a project started!!
AND..........does anyone out there have a simple, free knitting pattern that they have written (for maybe a shawl or a baby blanket) that they would be willing to donate to me? I would like a pattern that has been tested by another knitter and that you have pictures of that I could include in an auction goody bag. It would be a little promotion for you and I would certainly keep your credit information intact. If you do, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would need the pattern, a picture and (of course) your permission. It needs to be something that can be knit with alpaca yarn or an alpaca blend (wool, silk, bamboo, etc.). Thanks!!!
