The snow is falling, and the birds are busy picking up sunflower seeds from the deck railing. Quite a variety of birds today, including this Redheaded Woodpecker.

I finished the warm, fuzzy, grey cowgirl slippers that I was working on the other day, and I immediately cast on for another pair. Will post photos soon.

Now off to start supper, and maybe squeeze in alittle more knitting.

Stay warm  everyone!

                                   View from my window, as I knit through this winter's day. The lake is frozen, snow is coming down, and it's so...cold. I wish this deep freeze - we are in would stop. I would love a nice heat wave of the 40's.

Knitting away on my Cowgirl Slipper Socks, while snuggling in with the doggies, and kitties. It is a quick and easy pattern from the Interweave Knits - Winter 2006 issue. I am using a hand spun two ply of shetland, alpaca, and angora. So soft and fuzzy, they will make a great pair of TV, or bed slippers. I am already thinking about what hand spun, I will choose, to cast on for the next pair.

Off to do alittle bird watching and knitting.

Enjoy the Day!

                    After feeding my little friends, I decided to take some time to check out the
                                            January "Chinese New Year" Phatfiber box.

 Indulging myself in an extra large cup of fancy coffee, I began to take each, and every sample out.

 Really enjoying all the rich textures, and bright colors of all the samples on this very cold winter's day.

Thanks to all - who contributed to the "Chinese New Year" Phatfiber box. I really enjoy beginning part of the Phatfiber family.

Now off to get some work done and maybe....alittle spinning!

Enjoy the day everyone!

Doing a little spindle spinning with some of my bright kettle dyed roving today.
