Last Spring during Open Knitting a bald eagle flew by the classroom window and landed in an old pine tree in the yard. While many people are eager to see an eagle so close, Yorkie owners have mixed feeling at seeing them.  We have at least three nesting pair in our area and they fly over every morning. As soon as the leaves are fall, they will present a problem and the Yorkies girls wouldn’t go out without us. It just goes to show that you never know what you will find at Playing With Yarn during Open Knitting.
