Don't get me wrong. I love autumn.
The air is cool and crisp. I get to wear my handknit socks. The leaves change to lovely, inspiring colors. The thing about autumn I can't stand, is the arrival of what I'd like to call Public Enemy #1. The Harlot has a squirrel. I have a Flicker.
Flickers are cute like squirrels, and also very crafty. No, they don't steal my wool. They peck the house like jackhammers, on the wall right outside my bedroom, trying to make a hole so they can spend the winter cozy in my attic! The hammering begins in the morning as soon as it starts to get light. We've covered the attic vents with custom made steel covers, put up metal flashing, and replaced the wood siding with stucco. They still keep pecking! Does anyone have a recipe for Flicker Stew?
I have been knitting, but my progress isn't photo-worthy. For those of you who've asked, I finally figured out how to get my Crow's Feet socks pattern uploaded to Ravelry.
