New to blocking? Pattern includes blocking photos and instructions.

While I was taking photos of the sample scarf, a baby cardinal was taking her first flight. The nest was located in the bushes next to my front porch. All spring the parents guarded the nest. When I set up my camera and white board for the photos I had no idea what was about to happen. The baby was ready to take her first flight. She flew back and forth over my head searching for safe places to land. I could feel the flutter of her wings as she passed above me. What fun it was to witness the beauty of nature up close.

Aleteo, means “flutter” in Spanish. Add a flutter of color to your favorite outfit!
