Butter Witch

My wonderfully crazy neighbor, Liz, calls me Butter Witch. In all honesty, I can't even remember why. It either has something to do with Mr. Man wanting to start making Butter Bells or something about her nutty German grandmother. In any event, I promised her a "Butter Witch" yarn colorway, so here it is. I love it!!!

On the same day we did these two lace weights and I LURVEEEEEEEE the way they turned out!! So, I'll share them with you here. The top one is a gorgeous teal and the bottom one is a silvery grey/blue colorway.

I'm trying to figure out what I must knit that requires lace weight

Over the weekend we went to the Wildlife Arts Festival in downtown. We went to the raptor show, which was GREAT! They had all kinds of raptors - screech owls, Barred Owls, Bald Eagles, Vultures, Hawks and Kestrals. It was a really neat show. The Vulture was my favorite - what a great personality (er. ...birdonality rather) that girlie had!! The birds were injured, raised by people or otherwise non-releasable so they go around doing educational programs.

Here's a couple pictures from the festival:

This is Liz and I wandering around the festival. We affectionately call her Lizardo.

Oh, and I totally posted a picture from the raptor show yesterday without realizing that I hadn't told you about the festival yet! So, if you missed the Red Tail Hawk yesterday go check it out!
