Knitters, Flipping Out, It’s A Bird!


A little bit more about the Fiber Arts Extravaganza.  Did I mention how awesome it is to be in a room full of knitters, most of whom don’t know each other, all knitting, talking, laughing and admiring?  Or, how completely normal it felt to go up to a total stranger (though anyone who knits I don’t count as a stranger) and fondle a piece of her clothing or her project?  Gotta tell you, it felt pretty darn good!  And if that isn’t cool enough, I won a door prize!  Yay!  A set of Annie Modesitt Flip Knit books which are really neat, like a tiny knitting movie!  If you haven’t see these, you’re missing out on the cool factor alone!


Mr. and Ms. Dove are still keeping house on the electrical box.  I can’t tell if the chicks have hatched, the nest is never unattended, but I haven’t heard any baby bird peeping so far.  What’s the incubation period for doves?  Don’t know.  Off to google….  Google says 2 to 2 1/2 weeks, so we should be getting really close to hatching, if they haven’t already.  Like I said, the nest is never unattended.  I think I’ll just check  on it a little more often.  Maybe I can catch a glimpse.
