Business is good, and I don't have to do them.
I am convinced.
Well, it is pretty official. Bubbalee has had her babies. We didn't see her Saturday at all, and then on Sunday when she showed up, she looked thinner. And she ate, and went right back across the road to her hideout.
Today, same scenario. She did spend a few minutes out in the field behind the barn, but not her usual. And from the upstairs window, I watched her head for the road.
Let me just say that I am respectful of this road. The traffic moves quickly, to say the least.
As I watched, she ran back away from the road a couple of times, and eventually made her way across.
Nothing is going to keep this girl from her babies. I just hope she manages to stay safe.
She is just to the left of the yellow and gray guide wires, and her destination is just to the left of the tree, under the back part of the house, which is actually a shed.
This is what it looks like from the studio. I ran up to the front bedroom to see her better.
I just hope she can raise her kittens, and that we can catch them before they get killed in the road.
It seems so hopeless.
I am finally getting my groove with this order. I guess I wasn't crazy about the color combination, and it took me much trial and error to make it pleasing to my eye.
But I think I have it now.
I have a lot of hats in the shop. I don't usually put them on my web site. I guess I should. Some are felted, some are knitted.
While weaving is my business, and my passion, I have been knitting since the age of 4, and it is a comfort zone I return to often.
Here is the hat pattern I have been knitting lately. Bulky yarn, heavy hat.
I think I love to knit hats because I can finish one in an evening, and I don't have to remember where I am or what I was doing. It is also a chance to play with color and texture time after time.
It is also a chance to use up bits of leftover yarn. And I love that.
I like hats.
