Sunday visitor

 

Mom saw this chubby little guy peering through the sliding door to our deck. He scurried away when I headed toward the sunporch, but I managed to get a picture of him as he nibbled out back. You just never know what critters you will see when you live in the country!


I spent the day knitting yesterday, and I surprised myself by finishing the second spiral knit tube sock. 


I never really thought I could knit an entire sock in one day, even if it is in worsted weight yarn! 

I was tempted to start knitting another pair of socks, but I chose to work on the bloomers for granddaughter Kara's doll. I have too many works in progress, and I need to finish them up!

I've started round 5 of Star of Bethlehem from Bonded with tatting - doilies by Laura Bziukiewicz. It takes concentration, but it is so pretty!

  2. Who is your Sunday visitor? A beaver? I know about zebras and impala but I don’t know him! Your socks look fantastic! You certainly finished that project off.

    1. We're pretty sure he's a groundhog. We're too far away from water for a beaver.

    1. We're pretty sure he's a groundhog. Now we think we know who's been eating our veggies in the greenhouse!

    1. The one day finish really surprised me! Of course, that won't happen when I switch to sock yarn!
