We have truly enjoyed being outside this June. The weather has been balmy and mild and Crash is so interested in every creeping and flying creature. Everything outside fills him with wonder! It’s awe-inspiring and heartwarming to witness his growth and excitement with each simple experience.

Birds are one of his favorite creatures, and he can’t help but squeal with delight when he hears one singing in a tree or see ones swoop over our heads. We are hoping this crochet bird feeder will entice more colorful friends to come by for a visit.

He wasn’t super excited about a crochet dish filled with seeds (what is this?!), but Cubbie was thrilled to help fill it and find a place to hang it! They have both been waiting hopefully to see if some avian friends stop by to say hello.

This pattern is very simple and I would consider it a beginner-friendly pattern if it weren’t for the rope. Working around the rope is not difficult, but it does take a bit of practice, so a super beginner may need a bit of extra time to get it worked out. An advanced beginner should fly through this pattern!
