So now that my book of knitted birds is almost complete, I've decided to start knitting some new birds. The book focuses on birds that you can spot in Britain (although European and North American knitters will recognise an awful lot of them due to the wonders of migration) so I've decided to spread my metaphorical wings and try knitting some birds from around the world.
First up, a knitted rockhopper penguin!
I love penguins, and there are so many different varieties that I might try and knit a few different ones. First thing I need to do now though, is to knit a friend for this little fellow.
