YARN along...a tiny shawl!

So I heard a little bird needed a shawl...it must be tiny. What do you think?Follow others on their YARN along...here on Ginny's blog, Small things. There, you'll see what a lot of other women are making with yarn (knit or crochet) and reading...
I got Half the Sky (non-fiction, stories gathered by Nicholas D. Kristof and his wife, Sheryl WuDunn) from the library, a really dramatic book about women who are treated so poorly in other countries, and how they can turn around their lives (with help from us). It a hard book to read as it's sad to hear what women have to endure...I thank God I was born in America and have a voice. I'm also reading Christmas Train (fiction, by David Baldacci).Hannah saw this doll (which is very much like the American Girl dolls, which are $100 and I think it's unreasonably priced) for sale at Target, and didn't have enough money. The next day, Olivia, however, woke up asking if she could go to Target, she had enough money to buy that doll...and said "I want to buy it for her." It made me so proud...her generosity. She gave it to her, just wanted to see her sister happy.
It's fall here...and you might miss a beautiful tree in a day...there was a maple tree with fire red leaves, the very next day, they'd all fallen off. It's the best time of year for hikes. I love being outdoors...it's not too hot nor too cold. How is fall where you are?

I know a blog you would really enjoy...it is all dioramas that have been made into a book... go to mouseshouses on blogspot... the woman makes all the mice herself.


Cute little shawl...have fun. I have been out photographing butterflies and such and both my blogs have some new posts...but no indoor creativity to speak of.

I LOVE your bird shawls!! So funny - I was just chatting with friends the other day, saying that my chickens are so deep into molting season, half look naked! We were joking about having a benefit crochet party to make shawls for all of the chilly chickens out there ;)

lovely photos, I especially like the one in the woods. The book sounds too sad for me.

That is such a sweet shawl for the little birdie to keep warn while your weather cools.
Enjoy the colours and tripping through the leaves.
