a little bird told me

20041108bird.jpgso i'm behaving pretty badly tonight. instead of being a good student and studying for the big chinese test i have tomorrow, i knitted a hat instead. this one is still a little bit too large, but at least it fits (and i could probably get away with putting a cord on it for it to stay on).

i started it a few days ago, and i'm pretty pleased with it (well except for that whole just a bit too big thing). the whole time i was knitting the soft blue yarn, my brain kept thinking of a bird, so i sewed a felt beak on it and some sparkly buttons for eyes. i wish i had some yellow felt, but i was too impatient to wait until a store was open tomorrow. so orange beak it is.

i'll toot my own horn and say that i think it's pretty cute. but i have to admit, when i put it on my head it looks pretty silly. and it definitely looks more like a snowman and less like a bird.

I think it looks like a bird...maybe if you buy some yellow felt you can make a mouth that opens and closes!
