Thank you to everyone who commented on my blogiversary posts. It was fun celebrating with my blog readers. I appreciate you all!
You know how much I love nature. Here are some shots from a hike on the east side of the San Simeon State Park in the Central Coast area of California.
While the beach is nice, I enjoy the peaceful riparian habitat as well.
For the past several weeks, I’ve watched a mama chipmunk dash in and out of her underground nest with goodies to feed to her young. The babies finally emerged to explore their world.
Is it safe to come out now?
The children stay close to Mom while they check out their new surroundings.

This gal has been hanging out on our lawn a lot lately. I think she’ll be giving birth very soon! The other day her belly was moving around a lot – she was either breathing heavily or her baby (s) are kicking.
So happy to have spring flowers coming along at last!
The recent Polar Vortex brought beautiful frost formations to my windows. I was mesmerized, seeing trees, birds and even a flower garden in them. What do you see in them?
These cute little guys love to play on my lawn.
After chasing each other around and playing hide-and-seek behind the pine trees, they settled in for a graze, a kiss and a nap.
I’ve been remiss in posting lately. I’ve been so busy on the TKGA Level 2 project, I haven’t had time for anything else. So here’s a photo from my garden which I hope you’ll like. Not a bad substitute for knitting-related posts, I hope!
This time of year here on California’s Central Coast is a feast for the eyes.

I love being in Ohio for the fall colors.

To celebrate fall, I’m using Rowan Felted Tweed to make the Bold Stripes pattern from my book, swapping the book’s bright spring palette for muted fall colors
