You will love to have these adorable birds sitting somewhere in your house. They sit where you want them because of the wire in their feet. However, they may be a bit silent.
Gauge is absolutely not crucial. Just use your leftovers.
I picked up my knitting needles in December 2011 and just couldn't stop knitting home decorations, which I designed myself. However, there is not much time left for knitting because I am still a very busy mother of 9.
But I have a couple of blogs as well, also in English: www.knittingforyourhome.blogspot.com. Welcome!
At my blog you can also find a couple of free knitting patterns!
