The View from Up Here…

February 1 Photo Challenge called for a photo of your view today. Well, it’s February 1. I live in Kansas. Shouldn’t my view look a lot like this?

This is a photo of the snow from last year. It’s beautiful, and I love to look at it (from inside our nice, warm home… wrapped in footie pajamas, and a snuggie, and a double fleece blanket. ) Well, I was kidding about the snuggie. ;)

This year, our view has been like this:

No snow. Perfect temperatures. Beautiful days to be outside. SUNSHINE!

This is a view from our front porch today.

And here’s a view from the other side, a bit later in the day.

I love Kansas…

Fab-u-lous Yarn That Makes me Drool

I'm almost finished knitting this rabbit for A:

(Really, he has taken me too long to complete… I should be finishing him right now…)

BUT, rather than finish the kitchener stitch weaving that is required to finish his feet, and then moving on to the tedious job of stuffing his head, and placing his eyes…

I'm looking on Etsy…

shh.. Don't tell A…

I'm going to finish it tonight… but right now, I'm getting inspiration for the next project. After Q.'s alligator of course.  I haven't found a pattern yet…

Sometimes, I see yarn, and it makes me giddy… 


I LOVE this yarn… it is wool, and think how awesome it would look felted! This yarn would be perfect for making the woven, felted purses the eBayqueen taught the Girl Scouts to make.  You can find it here.  Seller: MySweetSpot2



This one is called "Before Midnight"… hand-dyed superwash merino… I'm not sure what I would make with this, but I LOVE the color!  You can find it here.  Seller: pigeonroofstudios




Knitting Harry Rabbit, required me to learn how to knit in the round on double pointed needles.  I love knitting in the round, and I am convinced I can make socks now.  I've considered making socks for my favorite leprechaun (P-Tricky), and what better yarn than this Lucky Leprechaun hand dyed merino?  You can find it here.  Seller: spinningtheweb


I could spend hours, and hours just browsing Etsy…  but I've gained a little inspiration… and I'm going to go finish Harry Rabbit.
