Crafterday: Purple Bluebird

Happy Saturday! Can you believe that I am actually writing a Crafterday post when I should be? Astounding!

Today’s craft is the knitted bird I made for a friend. I used the “Bluebird of Happiness” tutorial by Sarah Elizabeth Kellner on Ravelry. (Click the picture below to find it!)

It knits up quickly and rather easily and is so cute! I’d love to make some of these as Christmas Ornaments. Say, red or green with a silver ribbon? Totes.

(And you should know that I never say totes.)


I used a slightly wavier, fuzzier yarn for my bird. This made it tricky to deal with, (especially, knitting in the round, with all those double-pointed needles!) but it was worth it because the bird is so soft and cuddly! :)


So there is is folks! If any of you happen to try the pattern, show me! I’d love to see your creations!

Have a happy weekend!
