This is for the Birds

I was in World Market at Christmastime. I was there to buy Dollface an Owl Cookie Jar...which she loved, by the way! While I was there, I saw these:

It's a strand of brightly colored birds. Seriously. That's all it is. They are made of fabric, and although I do not have an in-person photo, here's what several strands might look like, all hung together, like they were in the store:

First of all, let me remind you that Birds do not make me a Crazy Person. Hexipuffs make me crazy. Birds are just quirky...and a little too rich for my blood to get multiple strands, at $6.99 a pop. But (and you knew there had to be a "but"), I just finished making this:

And these:

And I found this pattern on Ravelry:

Bottom line, I have lots of brightly colored yarn (I have buttons too, this is fate, I tell ya!), and I simply must make myself some birds. I'm not even sure where or how I'm going to hang them...those details are for the birds! (I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually...)

Are you knitting anything crazy? Or am I all alone out here? 


  1. I'm pretty sure your kitty cats could find a good use for those! Especially if you tuck a little catnip inside, wink wink. But perhaps that wasn't what you had in mind.

  2. So cute! They remind me of the colorful butterfly magnets my Granny used to crochet.

  3. I love them! You could maybe make a wall hanging, or hang some in the windows, or... all kinds of things! :)
