Red Wing Black Birds 🎶

Friday February 16, 2018  The redwing black birds are singing like they think it's spring. It's alway a welcome sound that starts in February and goes on for most of spring. They appreciate the water in the creek, the tall cottonwood trees for roosting and the all you can eat…

Saturday January 13, 2018  Another 40 degree day in the "winter that wasn't".  It's so strange that we haven't even had one night below zero.  We often see snow here til April, so there's time to change the landscape yet, so we'll keep hoping.   Ed will be opening Yaya's Yarn Barn…

Friday January 5, 2018  We had a bonus dye day yesterday. An appointment was cancelled so I quickly filled up the extra hours with more dying. I now have enough yarn to get some skeins listed in the store and I really think I'd like to try knitting a big…

Thursday January 4, 2018

Thursday January 4, 2018  We got some gorgeous purple yarn dyed yesterday and I love the way it turned out. I tried a gradient method to give the depth of shading and it turned out exactly as I wanted. It's still drying and needs to be reskeined but I'll have…

Saturday December 9, 2017

Saturday December 9, 2017  Well, it's a little embarrassing to admit, but I found a "small mountain" of roving and yarn that I tucked away for my own personal use last fall and there is no way I'll ever find time to spin or knit with most of it.  So I'm…

Sunday December 3, 2017  The weather guys say we'll see snow today. I don't trust them any more. But I do trust the birds. When I look at the feeders and they're having a feeding frenzy I know we'll have snow. I'll be checking the birdfeeder once I finish this update.…
