I'll get the bad over with first. The knitting is Anne's beautiful Ondue sweater pattern. I love the pattern, the yarn and the color, so what is the problem?
Well..........in my anxiousness to start, I made the wrong size.....aggh. Usually I will highlight the size throughout the pattern, but I didn't this time and it has cost me. I had contemplated making it for one of the girls, but I think I will enjoy it more than they will, so I will start again. Thankfully I had started with the left front instead of the entire back.
Now onto the good... the yarn is a 2ply fingering weight spun with Chris's Corriedale/Angora blend called Cinnamon Shimmer. Last time I checked she still had some available....it is scrummy stuff! I have almost 600 yards, so I'm thinking either a longish scarf or a small shawl is what this will become.
Ondule and Cinnamon Shimmer will look nice together, don't you think?
There have been some good things going on in my yard too. :) Can you see the little heads? This is our new crop of baby robins. Mom and Dad made the nest a little higher in the bush that they always build in, so it is hard for me to get a good picture. Dad gets pretty stressed when I poke my head in to far, so I have not bothered them too much.
It always amazes me how fast these babies grow. From hatching to fleging takes no more than 10 days....amazing! I am hoping to catch the fledging again this year....but I am not going to help any little fledglings that can not fly. I don't need Daddy Robin dive bombing me this year...haha!
