The strings in the wind have grown into a quilt top. I took your advice and kept the other colours to a minimum. Next step is to find a free floor space to make the layers, and quilt it. Luckily this is not a very large quilt.
A new pair of Train socks, this time for the Red Cross. I have knitted at least one pair per month for the Järvenpää babies as well, but I often forget to take a picture before giving them away. Anyway, they all look the same, just different yarns. Here I used two little rest balls of baby sock wool. One pair only takes 38 g of yarn.
One day I happened to look at the little rock just outside our yard, and I noticed someone had brought a mossy stone on top of the rock.
I looked closer (through the camera lens) and saw that it was a pheasant cock fast asleep!
He must have heard me or felt that I was watching, because he opened his eyes...
... and stood up, looking around as if to see if anyone noticed ...
... and then he stretched his neck and let everyone hear his "song", flapping his wings.
"What, no applause?"
Some days later I caught him hammering our cellar window, where his rival and enemy is lurking every time he comes to check. He also fights back, every time!
We were just 15 inches apart, only separated by a dirty window. I think I need to tape a newspaper on the glass to make the mirror image disappear.
