i found this picture of a knitted bird and really like the simplicity of it. i have been thinking again about knitting with wool spun from cheviot sheep and making birds solely from that wool.

I discovered that there was an albino bird on Handa at one time. i could make an albino oystercatcher from the cream wool spun from the cheviot sheep.

'Probably the most unusual bird - an albino oystercatcher with a twisted bill - now resides, stuffed, in an Edinburgh museum having died on Handa in 1967'
