Put A Bird On It!

I did some scary bad knitting after I finished my sweater. I was going to share that today, but it is Monday and I am sick so sharing nice looking seemed a bit more pleasant to me. Long story short, I knit a really ugly coffee cup sleeve and the next day I was bit horrified by it so I wanted to knit a more attractive one.


Living in Lancaster has caused me to seriously cut back on my coffee consumption because there aren’t elventy billion places with amazing coffee within walking distance like there is in Tacoma. There are actually zero places that I have found on campus that have good coffee. For that reason my poor sleeve will have to go unmodeled.


I just doodled up a chart on Illustrator with birds on tree branches. I knit it using leftovers from my sweater. I quite like it, but the entire time I was working on it I kept thinking of this:






  1. I love that guy! He’s one of our favorites from Saturday Night Live 🙂

  2. That “Put a bird on it” is so spot on. I just laugh at how they think real birds are gross.

    The chart is looking good.

  3. Hahhahahah – love the Put a Bird on It sketch!

    And that’s the perfect method for coping with icky knitting. I started a sock last week that was just… no.
