But I decided to just skip it and start posting.
There has been tons of knitting going on and my Ravelry project page is fairly up to date with a few exceptions like a baby blanket I finished from my queue but don't have a baby to give it to. Yet.
Instead of rehashing right now, I want to post about my very first Wollmeise purchase. I can't believe I got sucked into the madness. I think my curiosity and inner competitor got the best of me. I bought two Kunterbunt We're Different packages of two semisolid skeins in the 100% merino superwash.
I don't know what the colors are called but I really like them. 575 yards per skein means I can make a pair of large socks with a single. Nice.
I like the green color the best:
I think I will try to trade maroon:
The bags they came in with German translations of English knitting terms are a nice touch:
Birdwatching has also been happening. I put up new feeders in New Orleans and Alabama and I hope to have some good feeder pictures soon. In the mean time here is a shot of a Great Horned Owl in a nest with two babies.
The shot is pretty bad because, as usual, I did not have my long lens with me. I am going to go back next weekend to reshoot, if the babies are still there. There is actually another nest near by with two more owlets. They looked a little smaller so maybe I can geta shot at them. Here are some lovely Cedar Waxwings on a grey day:
