The hubs likes to walk at our local reservoir, they have a beautiful walking path that is well maintained. I either sit in the car or on a bench and knit.
He sent me a text that our local Great Blue Heron was there, looking for dinner.
This Heron can be seen here most of the time, and is use to being around people. It is blue gray overall, the sexes are similar so I do not know if this is male or female. This is one of my favorite large birds.
There is something about each one of these pictures that I love! Sharing today with
I have skipped a week or two, or four of Yarn Along...
I have been knitting...you know I have, I can't exist without sticks and string in my hands.
what have I been knitting you ask?
I finished the Neapolitan Cowl I was working on when I last posted, it is the second of it's kind. These will make really nice Christmas gifts for my nieces this year.
I started another one while I was in Texas, I purchased this yarn there as I had not brought enough yarn with me. It is "hazel knits", lively dk, hand dyed yarn, 90% merino, 10% nylon. This was a great project for traveling and airplane knitting... it requires knitting and purling only. My hands have been busy and that helps me with my thoughts and recovery.
Oldest son Scott lives in Austin Texas. During a recent visit, we went to see the Capital of Texas which happens to be in Austin.
All of the statues were incredibly gorgeous!
Here we are with oldest son Scott This outing has inspired me to take a trip to see the Capital of New Jersey, Located in Trenton, New Jersey. I see it often as we ride past during trips, but I do not remember ever seeing the inside of it. Perhaps on a school trip when I was younger, but not in my adult years. The Capital of Texas is gorgeous. We had a really nice day with Scott!
