Coo! Here’s Bill the Pigeon – he’s here to tell you that his pigeon knitting pattern and pigeon knit kit are now available in my Etsy shop, so you can knit a flock of Bills of your very own! The pattern is available as an instant download and the knit kit contains everything that you need to knit Bill, apart from needles – you also get a cute Pigeon Club badge!
I’m going to be shutting my Etsy shop tomorrow (19th December) and re-opening again on 26th December. I’d like to wish you all a happy Christmas and thank you all so much for your support over the last year. I hope you all have a happy holiday period, and I’ll be back soon with new knitted birds!
Jarvis Cockatiel knit kits are here and ready to arrive on your doorstep with a cheery “hello!” from the postman. OK, I can’t guarantee the last bit – but I can guarantee a box full of all the yarns, notions, stuffing and odds and ends that you need to knit a lovely cockatiel. And don’t forget there’s a clear knitting pattern and a fun cockatiel button badge too! Cockatiel knit kits are available from my Etsy shop and I’ll be making and posting them all the way up the last Christmas posting date, unless I run out of badges first…
There’s lots of Jeff the Seagull knit kits going out in the post today to people who’ll be finding Jeff in their Christmas stocking this year! And because his kit is only £10 plus postage, he makes a great Secret Santa gift, too. Just remember, Jeff is for life, not just for Christmas – along with all the yarn and notions you need to create a pair of gulls, you also receive a printed knitted pattern, so you can make as many Jeffs as you like, all year round!
Meet Noel the Partridge! He’s a cute knitted partridge, who’s ready to hop on your Christmas tree (or pear tree) and he’d make a great holiday season gift. He’s 12cm tall, super friendly, and available as a knit kit or PDF pattern from Etsy, Ravelry and Love Knitting. The knit kit contains everything you need to knit Noel, apart from needles – and you also get a cute button badge of Noel and his much-loved pear.
And the next knit kit is ready and waiting for your needles to work their magic! This is Bob, the Northern Cardinal. He’s the perfect size to sit in your hand, and can’t wait to come and live with you. He’s easy to knit on a pair of 4mm knitting needles, and your knit kit will contain everything you need to make Bob, along with a cute Bob button badge. Grab your cardinal knit kit here in my Etsy shop, or download the pattern from Ravelry and Love Knitting!
Who’s a pretty boy then? Sparky the budgie! He’s easy to knit flat on 2 needles and can’t wait to be your new best knitted friend. His knitting pattern is here in my Etsy shop, and also on Ravelry and Love Knitting. I’ve also put together a budgie knit kit, containing everything that you need to knit a Sparky, including yarn, notions, stuffing, the knitting pattern and a lovely handbag mirror – it would make a really cute gift for the budgie fan in your life.
For a limited time, you can swoop down and pick up a copy of my book Knitted Birds from my Etsy shop, and enjoy free UK postage and packing – and if you’re outside the UK, shipping is just £3 for airmail to anywhere in the world. Woo hoo!
