This little knitted blackbirds is still one of my favourites to knit – the pattern is in my book Knitted Birds, if you fancy making one yourself. At this time of year the blackbirds in my garden seem more friendly than usual and come right up to my feet some days, when I go out to top up the bird feeders. I throw them a handful of suet pieces onto the grass and then have to wait for them to finish, otherwise the seagulls come and eat it.
Another member of the parrot family – I’m definitely enjoying knitting parrots at the moment! This little cockatiel is currently for sale in my Etsy shop, it is hand knitted from my own pattern. If he has sold, please do get in touch, and I may be able to knit you another as a custom order.
