ATTN C.O. PEEPS: Knitted Birds Nests Needed STAT!

Cuteporter Mary P. sent us this Urgent QTE-Flash email. Let’s hear it, Mary:

I need your help. So far, I’ve only been able to knit 3 and a half of the 1200 nests Wildcare needs for this year’s crop of orphaned baby birdies. With your help, I bet the Cute Overload community can make the needed knitted nests in no time! Wildcare is located in San Rafael, CA. (North of SF.) This link has info on how to help.”



  1. Quickly! To the craft closet! *grabs knitting needles*

  2. 🙂

  3. Our shelter used little green plastic strawberry baskets from the supermarkets, lined with paper towels.

  4. Sharpy Bluth says:

    @rhea3 But these will be knitted!

  5. Gah! I hope I can get at least one done before they get inundated with them like the penguins!

  6. How does this not have a Knitted tag?

  7. Knitted nests coming right up. Perhaps something snugly in a nice pink Lopi? I got tons leftover!

  8. Here’s the link to the associated web page with the knit a nest craft-along instructions and more.

  9. @Kar there’s a Knitted tag? Who knew?

  10. edmundh says:

    I’m a guy, and I feel like learning knitting just to help the birdies out (and those penguins that needed sweaters).

  11. @Brinke, I miss the tag listing on the front page. Almost as much as the reply feature.

  12. well, we are working on some things. stay tuned!
