Zoe's Bluebird

A little F.O. to share...
I knit up this little bluebird for Zoe's birthday gift a few weeks ago. I followed this pattern and used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran yarn. As with all little toys I have knit, it was a bit fiddly to make. I was also surprised to figure out partway through knitting it that the distinction between the head and body shapes is made by weaving yarn in and out and cinching it tight. I would have preferred to work knitted shaping, but I guess I can't be too picky since it was a free pattern. I think Zoe likes it because Mark and Jerri sent me a picture of her biting the bird's beak!
