Remember last year when I was in the midst of the baby knitting marathon and I was knitting baby things at lightning speed (and I managed to finish everything before the babies themselves arrived YES I am so proud of myself for that)? Well, as satisfying as that was, the aftermath was that I was left with a crapton of leftover cotton ease yarn, which is what I used to make all the baby things. Ever since then I've been trying to find ways to use it. It's a great yarn for babies - soft, washable, and it comes in funky colors, as opposed to the standard baby pastel. I've done a few things with it, but I've still got a whole bag of the stuff staring at me, JUDGING. WHY HAVEN'T YOU USED US UP YET. WE WILL HAUNT YOOOOOOOOU!

I found out recently that there's a wildlife hospital in CA which is running a crafting drive to make knitted nests for orphaned baby birds. So they need nests that are soft and washable? I'M ALL OVER THAT YES. Especially since the pattern calls for two strands of yarn held together to make a tighter weave, which means the cotton ease will be used up a whole lot sooner. I thought I would pass the link on to you guys, though, as I know there are some crafters amongst you that might be looking for a good way to use up leftover yarn.

I've knit for human babies, so I think it's time for me to change it up a bit, and I'll knit for bird babies! <3

If you knit a little bag and the baby bird sits in it, is it now a self-stuffing down pillow?

Similar to my sandwich design that would take bread, meat, cheese, a puppy, and more bread to make a self-eating sandwich.
