I have such a fun knitting project for you!
Look at this sweet thing:
These are knit! Felted nests. Does it get any better?
It is a free pattern available at the designer's blog (I love this name): After I Finish This Row . . . . She is a wonderfully creative woman who needs to be encouraged to keep her blog current. (That means: she doesn't post often enough for me!)
I have made several of these nests, and it is so much fun. (I have no pictures because of other issues that I will spare you from for the moment.) I bought one skein of feltable brown wool and then poured all my scraps into a bowl. (I keep them in a coffee can all year and then put them out for the birds during nest-building season.) Always knit with the brown, but grab spare scraps and remnants and knit them in here and there as you go along. It is so addicting and fun! (When I get my camera downloading abilities back, I will regale you with photos of all my creations so far.) I've even made one for my little Lester. She has no idea what to make of it because it looks nothing like a typical, pitiful mourning dove's nest -- but nothing but the best for my girl!

I've been having so much fun, honing my dpn skills, and using up some of those newly-useful scraps. So pop on over to After I Finish This Row if you're interested.
