Much ado

I'm keeping busy this winter, how about you?

I'm saving my yarn scraps for any birds that might need them this spring.

today i'm saving yarn for bird nests

I'm preparing myself for what might happen once a certain book of baby knits comes out and one of my handspun yarns is inside, a small part of one pattern.

I'm gearing up for the KAL that went on sale today and all the dyeing I hope to be doing for it - and the knitting of it, which will be my very first shawl (exciting!).

KAL yarns

I'm dreaming of spring and spring colors...and cookies.

I'm cooking from a new cookbook and enjoying it (especially the eggplant curry!).

I'm looking for knit/crochet designers to work with (are one? ...know any?).

I'm reading mythology with my 5-year-old.

You?


more from the Etowah Indian Mounds

It was very windy at the Etowah Indian Mounds. And V did a lot of running. She also met a lot of new people and gave almost all of them hugs. And several of them kisses. She was kind of happy to be there...

This is the first mound, the biggest one, where the chief would've lived.

This is the third mound, the smallest one, where they found a lot of interesting things like pottery shards, tools for grinding grain, and statues made of marble and painted.

The fish trap - rocks placed in an open V to corral the fish and make it easier to catch them.
