Cane Sugar Mitts & a Hawk

Does this look like a hawk to you? A closeup, as he sits on our fence. Steve was in the sunroom and luckily I got there in time with my camera to catch him.

I've been feeding the finches this summer, but for the last week or two, I haven't seen any. I think I know why.

I am participating in a KAL for Larissa; isn't this a cool color combo? My colors in the photo are almost right; the solid portion is Berroco Vintage in sunny, which I think looks like gold, and actually matches one of the colors in the Koigu. Pretty cool design, but then hers always are. I love how she encourages you to try new things. I know for a fact that I never would have picked these two yarns to go together without this pattern. Check out her KAL groups.

And by the way, did you get your new Knit Picks catalog yet? I LOVE the new Wool of the Andes TWEED!!


  1. This looks like a Sharp-shinned Hawk which does like to hunt birds. I'm sure he thinks you're running a food farm just for him.

    Love those mitts and your color choice is so pretty. Happy knitting.

  2. I'm a sucker for tweed, as you may have noticed. My preference is for tweed that has real wool flecks, not the fake ones made out of synthetics, but that said, I'm playing with a little SMC Montage right now and enjoying it.
