|In case you missed it, here's Pair of Keets by Debi Birkin.|
Debi has done it again.
This animal pattern is adorable and so accurate.
I had my parakeet, Ernie for Ernie Banks, for 14 years.
Taking care of Ernie taught me the rules of pet ownership.
I cleaned his dirty cage daily.
He was all mine.
I took him into the bathroom once to fly free and it was a disaster.
I was terrified of him in flight and he kept flying into the large mirror.
Fireman's mom always had Parakeets and they were all named Sonny. She let them out and she finger trained them.
My sister has had a few too.
My sister taught one of hers to say Hello.
I had a funny attempt at teaching Ernie to talk.
I bought a record that repeated, OVER AND OVER AND OVER,
Hello Hello Baby . Hello Baby Want a Kiss?
It was hysterical to listen to.
I was too lazy to teach Ernie myself.
Ernie never did talk, but he could squak
with the best of them.
When people come up with these amazing patterns I am so impressed.
I have only knit one stuffy, a one seam Bear, once.
It takes skill to make stuffed animals I think .
I won't be knitting this pair, but I do appreciate the creator.
Anybody want a cracker?
