Pigeons in waiting


Here they are 007 - 016 sitting on my shelf with their numbers tied around their necks so I know which is which. Most of them are still waiting for eyes, beaks, wings and feet.
I should point out that 009 is a knitted pigeon. I tried to adapt the crochet pattern for knitting and the result is an even more skittle-like bird.
011 is "una paloma blanca" and those of you who have bothered to count may have realised that one is missing. "Where is 012?" I hear you cry.
He's at the rugby club bar...

PS: apologies for the dull photos- I blame winter.

I love your pigeons! I wish I could crochet just so I could make one - but tension and crochet yarn and me just don't go together! I put it down to being left-handed (at least that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!) I think the rugby club pigeon looks very happy with his pint of guiness! Pure genius!!

009 just looks like he's been on a diet! They do look very cute all lined up there.

I didn't know pigeons liked beer ...

Will 007 have a bow tie?! Sorry lame joke. They look great all lined up.
