Maybe baby sweaters? I need to think small and relatively quick. Don't want to put a lot of time into things that won't sell for much money. I have to say I am not feeling very creative. This always happens to me when I have to knit under any kind of pressure or deadline. It just dries me up and I can't seem to think of good things to do. The hats have been fun but they really can't be the ONLY thing I bring to the sale, can they? Or maybe I should just focus on one things and variations of that?
On another note, (pardon the pun), I have started listening to some Christmas music. Very light stuff-not full blown carols or anything. I have been listening to George Winston, and to a fellow named Billy McLaughlin who plays mandolins and lute. They are kind of Celtic/new age types and really lovely and low key.
I have also been listening to a group called CANTIGA that plays old English dance tunes. And to Childgrove that also plays the dance songs. Really pleasant and cheerful music.
It was so sweet when I went out to feed the birds this morning. I have the baby pigeons in a separate coop so they get enough food and water with no competition. I stuck my hand in to feed them and the one baby cuddled right up in my hand and tried to get me to feed him! They still look at me as MOMMA. I think I will always have a bond with them because of the hand feeding. It was really special and I sure do love them. Hope that doesn't sound too silly when talking about pigeons but they are really special animals.
New Girl cat is still without a name. Joe keeps saying that a name will come but she has been with us for nearly a week and still no name! I wouldn't mind any suggestions you might have.
What do you think of Elenor? Or how about Monday (Joe's suggestion)? How about Coco? She is really a dark seal point Siamese. How about Agatha? Email me any suggestions you have; we need help!!
Talk to you real soon,
