Flight of the Conchords

I am going to see Flight of the Conchords tonight and I am super pumped. Craig saw them in PA a little while ago and said that lots of people went up and gave them presents. One person gave them their tour shirt signed by the audience members! This gave me an idea....I wanted to make something that was original and that they might put in their TV show.

After some thinking, I realized that something small and knit would be perfect. I had just finished a mobile with birds for my future cousin. While I was knitting them, my friends were obsessed with the birds alone. So, I decided to make them their own birds. But not just any birds, birds made to look like them.

This was harder than it sounds. First, I had to decide what to have them look like. What clothing should they be wearing? I decided upon their most well known picture, the one with the big heads. Jermaine would be wearing his blue jean suit, and Bret his red plaid shirt and jeans. I couldn't forget their hair, Bret's beard, and Jermaine's glasses.

After figuring out how to to knit two blocks of color on my own, and sewing in their hair, etc. They are finished. Here are some pictures from this morning's photo shoot.

Now, if only I could figure out how to knit small guitars for the birds to hold....
