I'm a mama!


Well, kind of. 3 of our mama robin's eggs hatched today - look at those greedy little mouths - I just want to snuggle with their downy little bodies - but we all know how that would turn out. So from afar (at least 18" anyways), we will watch our babies grow. They cheeped at me, aw.

And because this is a knitting blog - a quickie of yarny goodness...lookie, lookie. I would like to serve either skein up on some french vanilla bean ice cream - decadent.

Aw!!! I want some! The best I can get are some damn house sparrows that are apparently nesting in the eaves above my balcony at the office... (no, it is not as glamorous as it sounds) no offense to the sparrows and all, but they are non native...

Awww how cute. We had birds one year in a nest on my front door wreath, the babies looked like yours but the mama wasn't a robin.
Yummy yarn :) I can't wait to get my Plucky Classic!

That's a weird place to built a nest. I love the color of the eggs.
