Edit: after research, I can now say that this is a female black redstart :) Just below is a picture I found to illustrate female black redstart
And here is my visitor:
This is a new bird I've first noticed yesterday. There are actually two of them from the same breed (I think). This is probably the female. The second one is very similar, except it is darker and the orange tails stands out more. The male also has some white on top of the wings. It's not obvious on this picture, but the tail is pretty red/orange, about the same colour as the plastron on red robins.
Anybody knows what they are? I didn't find them in my book about European birds...
Would you believe it, there's a yarn series from Opal called Harry Potter and the different colours have character names. I really fell in love with the Ron colour and started knitting a pair of socks for me with it
This is the first time I attempted felting. It did work out OK, but it got much smaller than I expected. This is a learning process and I have learnt things that I'll apply next time. Of course, I have already several felting projects in mind now! ;)
Another thing I knitted for the presents I'm making for Clay and Storm's first birthday. I had some leftover yarn from the jumper so I decided to make a hat. Here, it's modeled by Logan. It's too small for him, of course, but I really like how the crown looks.
