As I mentioned last time . . . the best thing about the early morning is coffee on the deck while the birds and I wake up.
So when I saw the book Field Guide to Knitted Birds . . . well it simply called my name. I mean really. Look at it. If you've seen other books by Arne & Carlos (think Easter Knits and Christmas Balls) you'll see how they cutely and cleverly designed the cover birds to look like themselves!
Inside you'll find pretty much the same basic bird pattern . . . but lots of tweaks to it . . . you can knit it to look like everything from a goldfinch to a peacock.
Take a look through it. It's a great way to use up little bits of stash yarn. It's a great way to practice 2-color knitting without the commitment of a huge project.
It's a great way to bring the birds into your house . . . without wings flapping!
