Nesting Instincts

I am on another charity knitting kick – because the projects are small and the recipients are cute.  I continue to make nests for Wildcare, which cares for injured wildlife in my county:

My cousin and I dropped off the nests on Saturday, and we took a brief tour of the Wildcare out in the public areas – hawks, a spotted owl, a woodpecker, tortoise, ducks, a pelican, just to name a few. It was so peaceful and restful to hang there with the critters.

And I’m on a jag of knitting baby items (hats and socks) for Afghans for Afghans. So cute, so fast!

These hats are out of self-striping washable wool, pattern is the Brioche Baby Hat. I used DK and worsted weight yarn instead of fingering, and used the preemie # of stitches, but knit the newborn length!IMG_1523

And some socks, with more to come!IMG_1525

and there’s a friend who’s having baby number two, and I haven’t started the sweater, and a pattern than must be conquered asap. Plenty happening, but fun too!
