Rainy Days Are For The Birds

I really needed this rainy day to finish up my latest project. Here is the before of a pink flamingo I handknit in wool. I love to knit with wool because it shrinks when you wash it in hot water and this big bird needs to wake up from his nap, don't you think?

Here's a link to the pattern for this felted pink flamingo.
There, now isn't that better?

Strike a pose!

Strike another pose!

It seems someone is just tickled pink about all this rain.

Yep, still raining!

Hee hee, I think you've become water logged. I love the flamingo though, he needs a name. John, I think. Yes, John the Flamingo or Ringo... Ringo the Flamingo.

Lord, please let the sun shine soon.

Yes, yes, Ringo it IS then! Rrrrrrringo!....oh Rrrrrrringo! That's how my parrot Simon would call for him (he likes to trill his r's). Ringo, the Pink Flamingo...I LIKE it!
