Nesting - The Knitting of "YOUR" nest

If I were a bird, I'd sing a song
and fly about the whole day long~~~

And when night comes, I'd go to rest
up in my cozy little nest.


Spring is here and all around us, little birds are setting about the task of building their nests. They gather sticks, and moss, and grasses and~~~ yarn.

Birds build nests, secret and deep
in holes in old trees,
and banks that are steep.
(Yvonne Winer)


As promised - the nest building (knitting) has begun! All the little birdies who placed orders will soon be rewarded with a cozy little nest.

Nests will soon be delivered to the states of
Virginia, Florida, Texas, Wisconsin, Arizona,
Oregon, Kansas, North Carolina,
New York, and Georgia.

Nests will also be delivered
to the countries of
Australia, United Kingdom, Germany, Canada,
Denmark, and Israel.



If you placed an order for a little bird nest
and your state or country was not listed above,
please contact me via email!
My email address is listed at the top
of my sidebar.




More than 60 yarns have been gathered from my stash
for the making of these bird nests.
Browns, and tans and blues, and greens.
Eyelash, furry, angora, mohair,
tangled, knotted,
and
curled.



Each little nest will contain between 25-30
different yarns in a variety of
styles and colors.


My goal (cross your fingers!)
is to have all the nests
delivered by
late May.


Can you keep a little secret?
(5 little nests will soon be delivered
to their new homes!)


What about little fall and winter birdies?
Don't they need little nests?
Of course they do!




Anyone who is interested
in ordering a little knitted nest
may contact me via email.



The next little round of "bird nest knitting"
will begin in August.
This little birdie
will knit for about 6 weeks
to fill those orders.


(No yarns were harmed
in the making of these
photographs! )

Hi Vicki
Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving me such a lovely comment. I have really enjoyed visiting your great blog too. Your knitting is beautiful. I especially love the storybook blanket and seeing your amazing vacation pictures. Your little Maddy is adorable. I hope you had a good Easter in your part of the world. I am sure the little doll Stella would love to visit Bermuda with you. I will ask her when she comes home! She was supposed to come back here on the 1st December last year but she had such a great time in Florida with Sheila that she is very reluctant to come home and is still there!
Best Wishes from England.
Lindsay

I love your nests Vicki! They are so precious! My mother always told to make sure I always had a lil bird with his nest in my Christmas tree! I am not good at posting buttons but will blog about you for sure! Anne

SuZeQ said...

Ohhhhhhhh Lordy me ... I really need something pretty like this purse to soothe my nerves. I was held hostage for EIGHT HOURS on tax day. Some guy went nuts-o while meeting with his tax man - guess he lost his business, his home, his boat, his car and feels he'll soon lose his common-law wife. Don't be upset though ... it was all a SWAT team exercise drill that we were part of. WOW - what an eye-opener though. Hope I'm never involved in anything like that IRL. But, if you want, you can still feel sorry for me and pick my name for the purse - ha ha!

SuZeQ said...

Even though it was all "pretend" I am still traumatized. SEND PURSE.

Craftypagan said...

Deb said...

Well, I see you have almost 200 comments!! That's awesome!! I'd better get busy commenting again and again so I can have enough chances in your giveaway! Really, I think of my little nest being knit quite often.

In fact, one day I was our at a store buying some gardening items. The lady checking out in front of me had on some dangling birds nest ear rings with little eggs inside. I complimented her on how cute they were and proceeded to tell her about a lady who was knitting me a birds nest!! I'm not sure she could picture it! Anyway, happy knitting now that the baby is here!

michelle said...

Bumpkin Bears said...

I came over to see your wonderful news of your darling Grandaughter coming into the world. I love the name of the fabric you used for the bag, reminds me of my days as a child when I loved to see in the top of the tree at Blossom time, felt like I was in heaven :) wishing your little Keri Beth Blossom filled days. Catherine x

Deb said...

It's a beautiful day here in Virginia, and I'm headed outside to work in the yard. I thought I'd say a sweet Good Morning to my knitting friend before I started my day. Hope that new little one is dreaming and not screaming. :)
