Look what I found on @eBay! A pair of hand knitted pigeons http://r.ebay.com/Rs6ODj
I’ve knitted all the parts for pigeon one. All I have to do now is sew them together!
This is the second pigeon with his green and purple colouring.
I knitted this throw on holiday in Cornwall, weaving in the sounds of the sea and the gulls as I worked.
Having spent most of my childhood petrified of the daleks and some of my more recent adult years not daring to blink, it seems odd that I should so enjoy knitting Dr Who scarves. The beauty of them is that you can literally knit them anywhere and they sometimes lead to the most interesting conversations on public transport!
To quote another popoular BBC children’s TV programme: Here’s one I made earlier!
I just knitted the three bears. Each wears a natty bow tie, all ready for a picnic!

I was recently commissioned to knit a pigeon pair. What a delightful project.
Here are the materials I’ve gathered together.

We are currently taking a short break for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, but will be back knitting again next Tuesday, 12th June, 6pm till 7.30pm. Don’t forget that’s a very special date. It’s also DeeDee’s 15th birthday!
