A Fabulous Knitting Podcast - Skeindeer Knits

Over the past year I have been watching & enjoying various knitting podcasts on YouTube. One of my favorites is Skeindeer Knits which is hostessed by Eli who describes herself as "a Norwegian living & knitting in London."  Eli is an accomplished colorwork knitter.  Colorwork is always something I have wanted to master.  Her enthusiasm for this way of knitting is contagious, & her expertise is as awe-inspiring as her finished projects.  If you are interested in hearing a delightful young woman talk about this type of knitting, you won't be disappointed in watching her episodes.  Just visit YouTube & type Skeindeer Knits into the search area.  This will lead you to her channel where you can subscribe   : )

Another Bird Visitor

I just thought I'd stop by to say hello & do a wee bit of catcing up up.  I finally got all the Christmas things put away a couple weeks ago.   Haven't really downsized them much as I decided it was more important to start downsizing things on the main floor rather than in the lower level.  I managed to get my yarn & some knitting items sorted out in between medical appointments.  Will be starting with the cross stitch items next.  eBay or wherever I decide to sell things is going to keep me very busy once that gets underway!

A female red-bellied woodpecker came to partake of some of our seeds today.  John & I always enjoy when she & her husband drop by, or some of her kin.

Speaking of me & John, yesterday we celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary!  Where does the time go?  We traveled to Lexington to eat at our favorite seafood restaurant & spent the day reminiscing about all these years.  We're looking forward to the next 41   : )

Our temperature this weekend is predicted to be 70 degrees!  I am not amused!  

I hope all is going well with everyone!
