What A Gorgeous Bird

When my dear sweet bloggy friend, Ali, offered to knit me the Little Owl Knits' Sweet Robin Wristees after I'd wistfully pinned them to my "If I Ever Learn To Knit" Pinterest board, I couldn't order the pattern or wool fast enough!

Look!

How clever is she?


How lucky am I?


I am well and truly smitten.


Thank you too to all of you for your lovely, lovely comments - my back feels a lot better.  I shall be twerking again in no time ... ;-)

  2. They are lovely! You must linger as you shake hands with strangers, to make sure they notice. Would matching leg-warmers complete the look?

  10. Oh my goodness, what a lovely friend Ali is........
    I bought this pattern about 2 years ago as I simply adore Red Robins and love wearing wrist warmers, But as yet haven't knitted them up.......I must crack on and get knitting.
    Enjoy wearing them......

  16. How very lovely of your friend. I would be proud to wear those mitts but know they are sadly way beyond my limited knitting skills. They look fab on, very quirky and in very gorgeous muted colours too. x

  17. Awwwww, they are lovely.
    Lucky gal.
    I am resorting to cutting up an old jumper to make myself a pair as my knitting skills are rather remedial, to say the least!
    Have a great week,
