Little Knitted Chicken (My first Monthly Make)

I loved the little juggling chooks that I saw on the Red Ted Art blog - so cute! I wanted one of my own but instead of sewing I picked up my knitting needles. Not that I am a real knitter you understand; I can just about cast on and off and my only stitches are knit and purl. I just had the urge to knit last night though, it's very theraputic and maybe with it being half term I have too much time on my hands this week???
So here I was wanting to knit and wanting a little juggling chicken - why not put the two together? This is the result. Because she's a bit stretchier, as she's knitted, I managed to shape a couple of wings for her too. I love her! She's telling me she needs a friend though.......

Thank you for visiting my blog. The tree came from (whispers embarrassedly!) Wilkinsons!! Do learn to crochet, it is a fun thing to do, very relaxing and you are obviously a good knitter already. Love the cards on your blog too.
