I still need to photograph the pattern and the four variations I’ve made from it that I talked about last week, but I got distracted and photographed Toby watching birds out the window:

I’ve been knitting, too–a cotton cardigan to wear over dresses in the summer–but there’s really nothing to see yet, since I’m not past the shoulders and it’s just plain stockinette. If you want to imagine it in tan, it’s this pattern.

And inspired by the goat pictures and Animal, Vegetable, Mineral, I’ve ordered some navy gingham to make into a dress that hopefully will come off more like a sophisticated nod to hobby farms than Dorothy from Kansas. (We shall see.)

Toby approves of the crafty plans. And birds.
