One Crazy Fiber Lady

I’ve made a great deal of progress on Evenstar and while I like the pattern, I’m just not sure about the yarn. The gradient is far more variegated than I expected.

I’m just not feeling it. Spreadsheet says 31% complete and I think I should stop now and restart with a different yarn. Now. Rather than layer. Yes?

On other news I saw a rather unusual sight this morning on my way to work. Driving down the block on the way to the station I spotted something on the neighbor’s lawn that I initially took for a lawn ornament. Which moved. I backed the car up. This is what I saw:

Sorry for the crappy photo but the regular camera was in my purse in the back seat. My iPhone was in my pocket. Internet research leads me to believe s/he is a red tailed hawk. I interrupted breakfast. Shortly after I snapped this the bird flew with the catch to a nearby tree and I headed for the train.

    Frog if not loved. I have a red tailed hawk pair in my woods nesting. Mine will have to settle for squirrels, birds and bunnies as all of our chipmunks have disappeared. I suspect they all died over the winter from starvation and tick infestation.

    That hawk is amazing. Very cool spotting!

    I would rip it out. You will end up unhappy. You have knit it so quickly – in no time you will be back to the same point with yarn that you like.

    Do you have any in the stash that would work?

    They are impressive birds. Cornell Livestream has the newly hatched three chicks with a dead squirrel in the nest with them.

    Frog. I tend not to be a variation kind of girl when it comes to lace.
