My other pet
Although they don't look like they're missing any meals, I do like to throw some food out there for them and the other animals. I threw a few apples that were getting old and wrinkly out there the other day and was amused to see half an apple on the picnic table the next day - like the squirrels were having a picnic, but got distracted halfway through. When I was taking the bunny picture, I noticed another partially eaten apple in the tree:
I found that amusing too - another squirrel trying to keep the treat to himself? A bird pecking away at it? The poor bunny has no shot at that one. In any case, the next time I went out back, the apple was gone.
I also thought I'd come clean with a few of my yarn purchases. I mentioned the Merino Style I bought from Knitpicks. Well, that's not all I bought. I also bought some Memories sock yarn:
I also bought some Ambrosia, a Baby Alpaca Cashmere blend:
I bought these because I had never tried them before and I was interested in trying them out - and who can resist the great Knitpicks prices? The memories isn't quite what I was expecting. I think it's a little more loosely spun than I thought. I do sort of like the colorway, although I think I'd like it better without the lavendar. The Ambrosia is heavenly. So soft and pretty. I was thinking maybe something for my sister's baby, if she's having a girl. I also got some Alpaca Cloud:
although I didn't get it directly from Knitpicks. I got it from Amanda. She decided she didn't like it, so she sent it to me - I love it! And Knitpicks has a new stole pattern that would be perfect for this yarn.
