Nicky - Big Garden Birdwatch 2019

"I've been knitting for about 7 or 8 years now - I haven't got the patience to knit large objects - every jumper I've ever knitted has failed terribly - they've been saggy or not fit properly!

I've always loved birds so they seemed like the logical thing to knit. These little birds are small and easy to finish, perfect for whiling away an afternoon."

Nicky's book is available from our shop!
