My Creative Space

When I saw this pattern on Ravelry I just had to try it straight away.

As usual I altered it slightly from the original.
 Instead of sewing seams, I mostly crocheted seams. And I made the beak ever so slightly bigger.

I will definetly be making more. It is a  great way to use up the cotton. The next one I will be using a smaller hook( maybe a 3.5 or smaller), as I wasn't happy with the gaps in the stitches (htb) through to the stuffing.

This is what I'm working on now. Another ruffle scarf, but with a different edging. Am also using that lovely homespun wool from last week. More about that soon!
And apparantly it turns out I wasn't being a woose with my finger.
Today I ventured to the doctors as I still had a numb finger tip. I have either squashed or severed a nerve, but hopefully it will mend eventually....But I did leave the doctors with my finger bandaged up to the next finger for a splint. As I wouldn't go get a Xray( a 2 hour return trip at least - no way!) I have it splinted as a suspected fracture for 2 weeks. SO I was concerned about my ability to crochet. But phew -still can, it has just slowed me down.

  4. So cute. I don't know how to knit or crochet yet but I'm on Ravelry and will have to add this project for when I can. :)

  5. Is anything in the birdie? Or just decoration? I haven't visited Ravelry yet! Ruffly scarf sounds nice.

  7. I hope your finger mends quickly! :) Good for you still being able to crochet though!!! It's a very cute bird - love the colours you have used.

  8. Aaawww! He's gorgeous! Love his bead feet! But wow, what a trooper you are to continue with that flying hook despite an injury. Hope your finger heals fast.

  9. Very cute and I love those ruffled scarves! I haven't came across any natural dye tutorials. But if I do I will be sure to share the link. Wishing you a happy week. :)
