Blue and Speckled


I have just finished making this little Blue Speckled Chicken and I just love him. He was very quick and easy to knit and even the sewing up part wasn't too bad (and I usually hate that part!). I love the way the yarn makes him look all speckled and my favourite part is his dingily dangily legs with his little knotty knees.


I can't believe that I have just managed to put in two photograph's in the same post! It has only taken me about six months to work out how to do it, and I probably will forget how I did it when I try to do it again!

I hope that everyone had a lovely weekend and made the most of the fantastic weather that we have been having - even up here in Scotland! Let's hope that it continues and we have a lovely hot and sunny summer :O)

That is one cute chicken. Different to the other chicken crafts one sees around, too, which is good.

I hope the weather will still be good when I get to Edinburgh! (June 10th)

Hi, I just love your blue and speckled chick - how can I get the pattern???? I have really tried hard to get this, I even bought Simply Knitting 66 from ebay but the pattern was not in there, very sad.
Hope you can help me.
