Little knitted bird's nest

Little knitted bird's nest in the spring sunshine - just the right size for a blackbird or a thrush. I was trying to capture the atmosphere of William Henry Hunt's painting Primroses and Bird's Nest.

I'll be making some larger bird's nests later in the year - but first I need to finish knitting an avocet and working out a simpler way to make it stand up than my current ungainly system of wires and weights. It's a bit of a challenge, this one...
