Little knit Robin

One of my favorite things to knit are little toys.  I don't know why... I just get a kick out of them.  I just finished an adorable knit robin.  The pattern is a free one by Susan B. Anderson found here... http://petitepurls.com/Summer11/summer2011_p_fatrobin.html

We have had horrible spring weather the last few weeks in Minnesota.  I have seen flocks of robins looking for a place to nest.  I don't ever remember seeing so many of them together at once.  

The cleverest thing about this pattern are the 3 little eggs.  They tuck very neatly under the birds tail.  My preschoolers were very interested in the tucking and untucking.  

The author of the pattern has just released a new book... full of amazing toys that you can turn inside out... can't wait to knit a few up!
