WWT Arundel Discover Birds weekend

I'm going to be at the WWT Arundel Wetlands Centre on 21st November, taking part in their brilliant Discover Birds day - I'll be there from 2-4pm on Saturday so come along and say hello and meet me and the knitted birds! I'll be knitting woolly wildfowl and signing copies of my book Knitted Birds, which is available in the WWT Arundel shop.

I'm so happy to be taking part in this event, as WWT Arundel was the inspiration for many of my knitted birds, including the kingfishers below.

There are going to be walks, talks, craft sessions and activities for all ages at Arundel WWT on 21st and 22nd November. Hope to see you there!

Chris Packham!

Knitted woodcock by Nicky Fijalkowska

Well this was very exciting - thank you Chris Packham for tweeting about my knitted woodcock! I'm hoping to have the knitting pattern for this woodcock available very soon (it's not in my Knitted Birds book as this is one of the projects I've been working on since it has been published). This autumn I have really enjoying sitting down and knitting some of our native birds that for me, reflect the spirit and colours of the season.

Knitted Pheasant

Knitted Pheasant is admiring some lovely new Sirdar Harrap Tweed yarn - I'm going to make him a friend. This yarn has such lovely autumnal shades! If you fancy knitting a pheasant, the pattern is in my book Knitted Birds.
