I am joining in with Ginny for this weeks knitting and reading and Tami for this weeks work in progress.

This week on the needles is a nearly finished cowl this is one of many Christmas presents that I am currently knitting.  I still have socks, a dress and a scarf on the needles and several more projects to cast on!  I am hoping that I will get them all made in time.

Reading wise I have returned to a book that I have been reading for a while but that had been put to one side.  The Secret Life of Birds is a fascinating insight into how birds sing, fly, bond and survive.  I was tempted to return to it after watching a DVD, Earth Flight, this is a five part documentary originally shown on the BBC which has the most amazing footage of birds.  There are close up shots on the ground, from the ground and most amazingly they strapped small cameras to birds and filmed a birds eye view.

What are you knitting and reading this week?

  3. Your cowl is so pretty! I love the yarn.

  4. Nice colors for your cowl. I enjoy watching birds out the kitchen window, but can't say I read anything about them. I do sometimes pull out my what bird is this book to see if I can identify them.
