Random Monday

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 . . . 


~ 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.

In case I forgot to share this with you before, here are some templates for snowflakes only a nerd could love - Darth Vader, Starship Enterprise, that sort of thing:
