My dear, dear friend Vibeke is celebrating her 40th birthday by hosting a Month of giving at her soul warming and beautiful blog a Butterfly in my hair. Every day there will be given a new gift at her blog and introduced the maker of it through answering some questions. Feel free to join, it is open to everybody and the gifts will be sent worldwide.
You can discover my little gift at the 14th of March. I am so honored to be a part of this celebration. Congratulations Vibeke!
About my gift:
I wanted to make something that would remind me of our generous host of this lovely Month of giving. I know that Vibeke is a friend of birds so I knitted a pair of Sweet Robin wrist-ees (pattern: tiny owl knits by Stephanie Dosen). I used Jamieson's Shetland spindrift, 100% wool, in pretty colors. On the left hand wrist warmer there is a nest with tiny eggs and on the right one a bird, a robin. These wrist-ees are the perfect thing to wear when feeding little birds. As Stephanie Dosen wrote to the pattern "when feeding birds you can simply point to your wrists and explain that you are a friend" .
I also arm knitted a huge scarf and then felted it and shaped it to a collar/neckwarmer. The yarn is 100 % wool.
with love, Anu
