I knit this Fat Robin (Ravelry link) as a swap gift but I might end making a second one. Sylvester loved that the eggs tucked up under the "wings." He couldn't get enough of taking them out and putting them back while yelling "BIRD! BIRD!"
I think the nest was the neatest part to knit - you started with a few stitches and increased, knit even for a few rounds and then knit the fringe by adding loops and later cutting them, then decreasing back down. The fringe was kind of nerve wracking! I had never purposely cut my knitting before. Haha. You do tie knits in each loop, though, so it's not like it's going to go anywhere.
