Kristine at says that she doesn’t want to hear anything more about nesting. (Her first baby is due next month.) Ah, well. Here’s her thousand words’ worth, with photo by permission of Jens Birch of Sweden. (It’s on page two of the birds gallery.)knitter’s knesting instinct

I love that picture! And I wish our Eastern birds would use the bits of yarn I put out for them in the springtime. I guess there’s always next year.

That picture is TOO cute! When we
had horses one time a bird kept
landing on our mare’s back and
pulling strands from her tail! It
came back quite a few times. Belle
never felt a thing!!

I love it! First baby how wonderful. I wish her all the best!

At least this bird has good taste! Yarn makes a much better nest than twigs!

What a great picture. I remember nesting; any time I get on a serious cleaning jag these days (which isn’t often), my DH asks me with a very anxious look if there’s something I want to tell him 🙂

Oohhhh what a sweet little wren face :-}

That reminds me, I need to get the feeding platform straightened out for this winter. Snow will be here before we know it.

When my book, Mrs. Muddle’s Holidays, comes out (and I have a date now–March 18, 2008)you will note that Mrs. Muddle celebrates “First Robin Day” by decorating her trees and bushes with bits of yarn for the birds. This being a picturebook world, of course they graciously accept. Too bad Mrs. Muddle doesn’t have your stash, or some birds would have some real designer nests.

Perfect photo. 🙂
Thanks Alison!

Oh and that website with the circus top hat is up and running just fine. I ordered about a million things. Then I couldn’t find my paypal password.
It’s been that kind of a week!
