Crochet along birdie...

During my search through Creative Space participants this week I noticed a few girls (Megan and Sally) were planning on tackling a sweet little birdie pattern out of the March/April issue of Crochet Today. When I realized I too had that issue I decided to jump in. So during Sophie's nap today I started the little guy up. First off it took me 2 hours to make him. But I am not one who crochet's toys so that might explain the length of time. I ended up putting some filling into the body to help him keep his form. But other then that it was a pretty straight forward pattern. You just have to really keep track of your increases, I think I read and reread some rows 5/6 times but the end result is super cute....Oh and Sally you might have to change that color of yarn you are working with. I highly recommend a yarn with clear stitch definition, I would have gone mad not being able to keep track visually....

Without further ado..... 




The little guy is still nameless but he enjoyed his quick trip to a small tree in front of our home.
I would leave him be a little longer but I am afraid with all the kids running around here he wouldn't last long.

Thanks for letting me crash your little party Megan and Sally
let me know if you need any help :)

I'm sitting on the bed crocheting some granny squares - well within my comfort zone - but you have just given me the big kick up the backside that I need to keep tackling this little birdie! Stay tuned - there'll be lots of emails with question undoubtly!!!

oh wow! and only two hours, well done you! I'm still yet to start, I've decided once I've done 5 report comments I can have an hour of crochet time to begin to try to make sense of following a pattern!

Great job Amanda. I plan to have a go when I find a spare hour or three (so probably never!) I'll just have to admire yours from afar!
