  • Tiny Perching Pigeon Party: in pictures

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on June 22, 2010

    London’s Trafalgar Square has been pigeonless since the ban on seed selling back in 2000. It’s a very wrong thing to do to a place famous for its pigeon-ality. Such a shame.

    With this in mind Stitch London teamed up with the Empress of the Tiny Knits, Anna Hrachovec of Mochimochi Land, to create a fibre-feathered flock of Tiny Perching Pigeons. It was seriously coo coo cool.

    Some tiny perchers have arrived already

    They're behiiiiiiind you!

    I'm not sure they paid for that deckchair hire

    Here's one I made earlier

    To Trafalgar Square: let the pigeon perching commence!

    Anna and Deadly Knitshade: Pigeon Party planners feeling pleased

    The feathered suspect line up goes on...

    And on...

    And on some more...

    And more...

    And a little more...

    Still going...

    Will it never end?

    Clearly not yet...

    It must be nearly over...

    Phew!

    Well maybe just a few more

    Pigeons all partied out. Time to fly home.

    Coo-l

    Now that pigeon-kind is returned to the Square once more we feel it’s important for everyone to get their pigeon on where ever they are. Anna has produced a free Tiny Perching Pigeon pattern for you to do just that.

    Add your Tiny Perching Pigeon Party pics to her Mochimochi Flickr group and our Stitch London Flickr group. Go on. Get your purled pigeons out there.

      I’m so upset I couldn’t make it! Like a pigeon I had gifts too – a lovely exotic bile-puking virus.

      Just as well I didn’t come along. Now if I had stitched myself I could have sent him along.

      What a wonderful sight! If feathered birds looked as delightful as these yarn birds, everyone would spend everyday feeding them in the park!
