Spring time is nest time!

Spring is a busy time of year for birds – time for nest building, then eggs, and then hungry chicks to feed. Don’t forget to keep feeding your garden birds, even though the weather is getting warmer. They’ll appreciate the extra help at this hectic time of year!

World Curlew Day

Curlew knitting pattern by Nicky Fijalkowska

April 21st is World Curlew Day! Time to celebrate Europe’s largest wading bird, and to think of ways that we can help this beautiful bird with the haunting cry; sadly they are in serious decline.

I designed this curlew knitting pattern for RSPB Shetland who are going to be celebrating their local curlews with events and knitted curlews in May. On Shetland they are known as “whaaps”, so please meet Wendy the Whaap, the knitted curlew! If you’d like to knit Wendy, her pattern is available on Etsy, Ravelry and Love Knitting. She’s made from beautiful Shetland DK wool from Jamiesons of Shetland.

Beautiful birdie knit kits

Thanks so much for all the lovely feedback you’ve been giving me about my bird knit kits – it’s all very much appreciated!

Beautiful, well presented kit which will be a gift. It looks excellent and such a friendly seller. Thank you very much.”

“Super fast delivery and great kit! I’m a knitting newbie but spent my whole Saturday crafting Sparky and I’m already looking at new wool for another one. Perfect, thank you!”

I’m so happy that people are enjoying knitting Jeff the Gull, Beneduck Cumberquack, Sparky the Budgie and the rest of the knit kit family. I’m going to be working on some new designs over the coming months, along with a very special kit that’s a bit different from my usual ones – will be able to reveal all soon!
