Feeding my passions...

So between classes of my own...six more weeks to go, home schooling..which is going well I am happy to say..and life in general..I am doing this..knitting and a bit of artwork. I love this yarn..nice wool blend..soft..a little chunky in places! On the skein it was not so pretty..but knitted up...well..I kinda love it!! This pair will feature a couple of fun Scottie buttons..almost done. Keep an eye out for them in my Etsy shop!
Now...I have been knitting in my studio and listening to my lectures for my classes..and also I have discovered this site.. Audible.com , which is part of Amazon. To post a review for Jeremy Robinson's book Ragnarok (which was amazing) I had to have purchased a book on Amazon. I had not..so I found a fun little cheap business book I liked and purchased it..and discovered Audible. Along with a free month subscription I received a couple fun audio books of my choice. Uhmmmm..I love it! I adore reading..and frankly have been soooo busy studying and creating..there has been little time to read..so now I get my book fix, art fix and knitting fix all at the same time. Thank you Jeremy!!
Oh and here is a secret you might not know yet..most public libraries have audio and Kindle style download books you can get online! One more little tidbit...you don't have to have a Kindle to get the program for your laptop or PC..it is free on Amazon..just download and get all the Kindle books (they are generally cheaper) you want. I kinda loved that!!!

Oh and in my spare time I have been playing around with owl tags..not sure what I think of these..hmmmm...kinda prim..kinda folksy. Tell me please..what kind of tags do you think I should create? Scottie Dogs are coming and some kitty ones..any thoughts?
Everyone back East...take care and be safe please!!!
Happy Tuesday all!

The yard looks very soft and wonderful. The colors are perfect for the season. Your owls are very cute... perhaps some elves might be fun.
Have a great day.
Always, Queenie
