Birds, Acorns and Sweater

I have not seen too many birds lately but today they landed in the birdbath as a large flock.

We are having a bumper crop of acorns this year from our giant oak tree.  It has not had any for several years but boy are there a lot this year.  Look at the concrete sidewalk.  That is after hubby cleaned them all up a few days ago.  It is not safe to walk near that tree.  We have 2 more out back but they are smaller trees.

I saw this baby sweater pattern and wanted to see if I could figure it out.  I used yarn from my stash so I had to make a few changes.  I think it is cute as it is but it was suppose to have sleeves and be a little longer.  But over a long sleeved shirt I think it would work.  You work it from the neck down.  I did this in a few hours this afternoon so it is a quick pattern done in worsted yarn.  It just ties at the neck.


  1. Cute little sweater! We have acorns too but out tree is much smaller than yours.

  2. a very pretty cardigan. We've had lots of birds in our garden, it's like they've been having a party
