The View from Where I Sit
I skipped posting Thursday, but I didn't mean to skip yesterday. When I tried to post, our wireless internet had gone wonky and I couldn't connect long enough to upload anything.
We have had rain rain rain rain rain. I discovered a disadvantage to the wire birdfeeder I bought last fall: when it rains for week after week, if it's warm enough, the sunflower seeds sprout!
Yesterday I had all kinds of birds out in the rain, but they kept flying off when I went to the window with the camera. There were red-breasted nuthatches, chickadees, a baby cardinal begging to be fed (although she was plenty big enough to feed herself), a couple of bluejays, a tufted titmouse, and a flock of mystery finches.
I tried to take a picture of them by zooming in on the sumac, but an instant before I pushed the button, suddenly all but one flew away, and I got a picture of its back.
Then when I lowered the camera, I saw this and figured that was picture-worthy, too.
I'm onto chart B now, which is all lace ground. Not very exciting to look at, but pretty easy to knit. I find it slow knitting the rows of double decreases in the Daphne, so it might take me a while to knit through this section.
