I finished knitting J’s seagull today and now he stands proudly, preparing to call to his friends. Mercifully, he is much quieter than the gulls outside. I love his beady eyes, made from the tiniest vintage buttons, but for me the best part has to be his knobbly knees!
I was worried that my little seagull would be lonely, so I went back to my Jean Greenhowe pattern book. I converted some little cavemen into tiny bathers and set them swimming in the sea!
Some happy bathers to keep my seagull company.
Have you guessed, yet, what the final project is going to be?
Seagulls can’t fly around forever. I thought maybe mine needed a soft, sandy island to land on? What do you think?
So, is it going to be a hat, maybe?
I thought that my tiny seagull looked a little bit lost and lonely. So I’ve started to knit him some sea to fly over.
This is starting to look like a full blown project. Can you guess what it’s going to be?
A friend asked me to knit her a seagull. She meant a life size bird, of course. But I remembered I had an old Jean Greenhowe pattern book and felt sure there was a seagull in there somewhere. Sure enough, there was! So I knitted the gull just for fun. He’s tiny, but he can fly! Here he is!
I’ll be knitting the big seagull soon!
