Pretty Flamingo


I was instantly attracted to this birdie from Sue Stratford’s Birdie book ( ), probably because I have always loved the song and watching the real birds.


3 Robins ready to fly

More knitted birdies from Sue Stratford . A friend asked for one but I didn’t have any brown wool.  A sewing friend passed on hers which were in different weights – hence the different sizes!.  I am trying to use up not buy more!. I ran out of the safety eyes so baby has just french knots. One robin has flown.

Trevor the mini Turkey

(refer back to Gerald the Turkey!). I am publicly declaring I will be knitting for Christmas from this book. Now I HAVE to start!. I already have the wool so no excuses really….

I have a weakness for small cute animals especially if fluffy, so it’s not really surprising that I fell for more of Sue Stratford’s mini knitted creations. The fluffball kitties have gone to their forever home, the bigger chicken also, and the smaller chicken will be flying the coop soon. If you are tempted, check out the Knitting Hut:
