Something Little.

In between the moments I have been knitting something very small.
Something the cat could have dragged home.
Something that has slowly begun to take shape.
And has turned into a little bird.
The boys and I are still laid low by this nasty coldy-virus. However, we have decided to have a few days in the grandparent's bach (N.Z. for holiday house) while Jonno keeps the home fires burning with calving. The odd beach walk when we can handle it, lego, knitting (Hugo is now learning), crocheting and t.v. watching... I think it will help us busy up with the healing process.
In the meantime, have a nice few days.
Love Kate xxooxx.

gorgeous! am guessing it is a kingfisher- saw one of them the other day when out walking. hope you all feel better soon, our 2 year old has something very similar i think and its hanging around for far too long!

Get well soon, hope you get to enjoy some of the school holidays. The wee bird is so gorgeous. Just love your blog! always check in everyday just to see whats new! how are your roses for the market doing? That is such a lovely idea, the mixed colours and the perfume must be beautiful.

lol! P.S. I meant to say, in the south of the south island holiday homes are called 'cribs'

What a cutie! This makes me want to learn to knit too!. I don't think it's a kingfisher though, it seems to me like what we call a pimpelmees, or a nun if I found the correct translation. They are quite common in the Netherlands.

Oh that is beautiful - did you use a pattern? or are you just extremely clever and made it up - I have a yearning to knit a budgie - I know its a bit strange but we are bird sitting two and I would quite like a knitted one for when they go home. They will be much quieter too.

It looks like a Blue Tit to me we get them in our garden quite a lot.

Will he have any friends soon?
