And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming

Wow, what a blur, 7 days, 7 new blog posts.

I wanted to say thanks to all the awesome people who read and left nice comments on the blog.  It was fun to meet y’all and I hope that I will continue entertain now that the prompts have run out.

So big props to Eskimimi for hosting the 2nd Annual Knit and Crochet Blog Week, the prompts were fun and inspiring.  I look forward to next year’s party.

So, with all the blogging, and regular life, I didn’t get much actual knitting or spinning done this week.  However, I did finish one fibery project.

A Fiber Feeder

This project was inspired by the folks at Juniper Moon Farm, a CSA fiber farm in Virginia (if you haven’t checked them out, do it now, it is lambing season and there are picture almost daily of the new labs and kids).

Almost a month ago, when it was spring in the mid-Atlantic but not on Georgian Bay they suggested putting your yarn and fiber scraps into a suet feeder to help local birds build their nests, post here.  Here in Parry Sound we have a great diversity of bird species and now that spring is really here, we have taken down our seed feeder and put up our fiber feeder. (We generally only feed in the winter as to prevent attracting bears in the spring, summer and fall, as well as to encourage birds to feed on the more nutritious native vegetation we grow for them).

So I started with a suet feeder my Mom had stashed in the shed.

Added some of the yarn and fiber scraps (all wool and cotton, no acrylics), I have been collecting over the past six months.

And then …

Happy Spring Birdies!

  1. What a great idea! When I was at Rhinebeck I bought a little bag of alpaca fluff specifically for the birds. I must get that out in the yard.
    It was great reading your blog last week. I look forward to being a regular reader.
