Knitted Parrots.........

Here is a little something (3 little somethings!) I knocked up last night. They are very small, about two inches long, and very cute. I am not too sure what to do with them now - pencil toppers? keyrings? earings? - but I know I shall be making some more in different variations, macaws definitely. They do not take very long to make now that I have figured out the pattern so I should be able to fit making them in around everything else I am doing at the moment!

Hi Toby - your mum asked me that a while back and I am still thinking about it - it's their colours that make them a bit more difficult! I'll let you know if I manage it.
