I’m participating in the Spin to Knit swap, where one spins and sends a skein of yarn to a pal during the months of January and February. It took awhile to get in touch with my pal, but I finally got her fiber and color preferences.
Turns out she really doesn’t like brown. At. All.
Guess what color is in nearly every one of the rovings I have already available to spin? My favorite neutral, brown.
No problem, I’ll just dye some up for her…
This was the sky this morning around 10am.
And here is a photo we captured the Saturday of the majestic (juvenile) American Bald Eagle.
Silly creature. They have an overabundance of food in the summer months (fishermen’s scraps and tourist’s insistence on feeding them assure that) but in the winter there is not enough natural food to sustain the huge eagle population that has been drawn to the area. Dump diving is the inevitable (and very commonly sighted) result. This fellow was so tame he didn’t shy away at all as we drove up to snap many photos.
Kinda takes the “dignified” eagle down a notch in one’s mind to see them munching away at discarded fast food. (Or to see one chasing a raven that has stolen said fast food – that’s actually quite funny.)
