Moving on to knitting, I have been trying something more technical. I found a pattern for a knitted blue tit bird and I loved it. The pattern is for intermediate level and had lots of terms that I haven't used before. Part of the bird is knitted by using four double sided needles.
I had a few problems along the way, I had to start the head twice before I got the idea of what to do and the double sided needles I found a little awkward at first but in the end things came together. I have made mistakes so I thought if the bird turns out ok I will make another one making sure everything is done right. All that is needed now is to add a beak, stuff it and add the legs which are made out of wire so that the bird stands up.
I have two 60th birthday cards to make this week, I finished one yesterday and here it is.
