I'm not quite sure how we landed on Monday again, but here we are. I have knitting to share, but alas, there aren't any pictures. Yes, it's definitely Monday. The knitting will keep for another day. Instead today is a good day for a bit of . . .
THIS AND THAT
~ Check out these intriguing pictures of shepherds on stilts. Click on the pictures to enlarge. As if getting around on stilts isn't enough of a challenge, note that some of the shepherds are knitting while on stilts. The sheep graze on bog land, and the stilts keep the shepherds out of the muck. Personally I would have opted for a good pair of boots. You can read more about it here.
~ Speaking of sheep if you need a holiday gift for a knitter, you might want to consider the sheep gift from Heifer International. Easy online shopping and a good cause all rolled into one.
~ Looking ahead to 2012 the top color of the year will be Tangerine Tango. The attributes of orange are vitality, urgency and strength. We can use a healthy dose of all three in the coming year.
~ Finally, paper snowflakes. It's that time of year when I like to pull out paper and scissors. Cut, cut, cut. If you need inspiration, take a look at these beautiful flakes made from junk mail. And if you don't have time to take scissors in hand, virtual paper snowflakes may be just the thing for you.
