I knit this birdnest at one of my first meetings with the Knitter's Guild. The class was put on by Karen S. We added pieces of twigs and pieces of long wet grass etc. into the yarn as we were making the nests...then I tied on a piece of sponge from the ocean! Wrapped the finished nest to a perfect piece of driftwood...adding lint from my dryer inside the nest for the birds to use! Was suppose to hang it outside for the little birds to use but just could not part with my 'masterpiece'...so it hangs in my front entrance...sorry little birds!
