Bird watching through the front window on Saturday morning.
House finches and gold finches.
A flicker. Beautiful when in flight, but I didn't catch him.
Oregon junkos and golden-crowned sparrow.
Chickadee and finch.
Checking the level?
Inter-racial rivalry over the suite feeder. Scrub jay and woodpecker with sparrow looking on.
Chickadee and finches.
Hummingbird frappucino? I caught this one during the cold snap a couple of days ago.

Gold finches in their winter attire, with one nuthatch as well.
A hawk looks on from high atop a tree.
I love the way the branches of the oaks form a lacy pattern.

Earring/jewelry holder and display. Done with knobby,uneven, natural handspun yarn which I inherited. #8 needles: pattern k1*yo,s1,k1,psso,k1,k1* pearl between pattern rowsAnd for extra fun I worked on creating a new knitting addict. Catherine went home with a set of circular needles, a how-to book, and a skein of pretty peacock-blue/green yarn. I introduced her to Webster's in Ashland. Sorry, Jamie. I wasn't quite sure about showing a lefty the beginning moves, but she was picking it up quite quickly. I think that my new daughter-in-law is like me and doesn't adapt well to "down time". Knitting is a great way to feel productive even when you're "not doing anything".
