Egg? Bluebird?

I just knit the most fantastic little toy out of Susan B. Anderson's new book Itty Bitty Toys.
The last chapter contains 5 ingenious reversible patterns, including this one... my favorite.

It starts out as a tiny egg and hatches into a sweet little Bluebird.
What a fun concept.

It was so quick! And way easier to construct than I thought it would be.
For this project I used 3 skeins of O-wool balance in colors Opal, Natural, and Agate. It only took a tiny amount of each skein.

(Yarn available here.)

I just used some scraps to make the beak and eyes. There was no way that I was going to order a whole skein just for that!

The "Bluebird/Egg" pattern also comes with its own tiny little nest to rest in. So adorable!
