Preying Manitis?

Digression from knitting! The photo at the banner on this blog was taken out front of my house. I actually TRIPPED over the poor thing and got bitten for my error. I have never seen one even close to where I live!

My spindles lay idle whilst I work, which is making me sad! Spinning reserved for this Monday, my official day off.

Happy spinning and knitting!
