Heavens! Two posts in one day! I’m in the car on the way down to my folk’s house for Christmas. It’s too dark to knit, so I might as well post those Christmas ornaments I mentioned a little while ago.
Knitted Birds. Oh so cute! I went rustic and folksy with them since I’m sorta lovin’ primitive/country decor right now. I wish my whole house was in that style!
I don’t have a Ravelry page up for them. Maybe I’ll get around to it. I did both using magic loop instead of dpns. A lot less fiddly, especially with the tiny blue bird. Oh, and I stuffed them through the head during the decreases. It’s way too much of a pain to stuff though the tail.
The turquoise one is made in fingering weight with size 1 needles. It’s probably about 1.5″ tall.
The brown bird is made in Cascade Eco (it’s a worsted weight) and size 4 needles. That one is about 2″ tall.
