Knitted White Dove

Hi,
I hope you are having a lovely weekend, I thought I would show you my knitted white Doves, They are hand knitted with white wool, stuffed with toy stuffing so they are washable with glass beads for eyes.
This pattern came from a new book I brought recently called 75 birds, butterflies and beautiful beasties to Knit and Crochet by Lesley Stanfield. Well I don't crochet but the knitting patterns are lovely. The leaves, butterflies and other items have clear pictures, my only problem is that it has its own instructions and some of the abbreviations are not the usual ones so I had to keep looking up what she meant.

I thought these would make some nice decorations for Christmas and would look good on my door wreath. I have put a piece of wool to hang it to photo the Dove but they can be sewn onto the door wreath or placed on a Christmas decoration various ways.


At last the sun is shinning after a cloudy morning, they say its going to get colder next week well it is October so I suppose we must expect the weather to start getting colder.
I hope you are keeping well and until we meet again Take care
Hugs
Margaret
