Notes

on saturday august 27, a flock of knitted birds mysteriously landed at a home in albuquerque and roost in the trees. later that day, there was a wedding in that same yard and curiously, the colors of the wedding were purple, orange and yellow, the same color of the birds. frightening!

thanks to eujean2 elizabeth for the purple, orange and yellow sock yarn, muddskipper kelly for the purple fuzzy/furry yarns, jerseykaryn for the purple worsted, pinkviking for the purple and orange lopi, pagoura for the purple, orange and yellow fingering, and mhenry for the assorted purples!
