Some new additions

I went out to Fibres West with a friend on Friday morning and had decided that I'd only purchase sock yarn. Two balls of the blue Summer Sox, Malabrigo green with a greyish cast, Araucania Ranco multy, Mega Boots Stretch by Lana Grossa in two different colour ways. I was very happy with my purchases and we actually had fairly good weather for the hour drive.

Regarding the nests of the last post. I think that they might belong to Blue Herons. On the news the other night they had pictures of similar nests in Stanley Park, the birds have yet to return because of the wet and cold weather. I'll be driving over to the park to check them out.

Stephanie, I don't have very good skills with basketry, so I am afraid nest building is out for me, as an art challenge, interesting but will stay in the imaginary realm.
Metscan, thanks for visiting and if I find out more about the nests I'll keep you informed.

Blue Herons huh? Interesting... I've seen the occasional nest like that around here as well and we do have blue herons...
