Bobbles & Birdies...

I have to smile when I look at this cowl. What a funny (and fun!) piece of knitting.

I'll leave you with a few fun birdie pictures I took a couple of days ago...

    And I love your birdies, so pleased you are giving them something to eat in this cold weather.
    Thanks for your kind comments on my stitching!
