WOOLLIE

I have finally finished the chicken jumper. This was started way back when my friend announced she was pregnant - the chicken has a special place in her life. The knitting itself didn't take long and my friend Andrea sewed it together for me (I have since mastered the art of the sewing). Next was the chicken itself - crocheted. I tried to teach myself to crochet, but it just didn't work for me. I couldn't keep the tension, let alone read the patterns, so I asked my friend Ally to help me out and this morning I collected the chicken bits - body, 2 wings and 2 legs and I joined them all together and attached the chicken to the jumper. I am really pleased with it.
