Finn


Why is it that when an idea comes into your mind for a new pattern it never comes out the first time you try to make it? Or is it just me! I wanted Finn to have shoes that looked like loafers. It took me ten tries before I finally got it right. In my mind it is crystal clear. Somehow there is a disconnect between my mind and my hands! In the end though I am pretty pleased with his little fiddly shoes.

I am really enjoying myself knitting tiny clothes for little animals. Beats making a sweater for hubby any day! Today I am going to be making some bunnies and some soap. I already have an idea in my mind for both..... hope my hands are listening!
There was excitement here over the weekend as the first little hummingbird arrived at our feeder. These little guys come a long way and are pretty hungry when they get here. It is so good to see them again. It's like having a dear friend come for a visit. I expect in the next few days more will be returning and fighting for the best territory. As tiny as they are they can really get angry when an invader tries to take over their chosen spot.

Well knitting needles are calling and bunnies are getting cold without some clothes.

Have a great day!

Welcome Finn! He is so cute and I love his loafers. I didn't realize that hummingbirds come back so soon. How lucky to have captured a photo of him.

Finn is a handsome dude. I like the little shoes.

We won't get hummers till mid-April. I need to get my feeders out and ready.
