A hen for Hennie

(please bear with me while I update the design of this website. More on that later)

It’s unbelievable but my mom finally got her apron! ^v^ It only took 5 weeks to get delivered. Jaiks, I really thought it was lost forever!

Here’s proof snail mail can be faster if it wants to! I mailed out this little hen last Saturday and my grandma (named Hennie) got it today! Amazing timing, as it’s her birthday this Monday and the mail man doesn’t come on Mondays.

Pattern: Dotted chickens by Susan B. Anderson (from her Itty Bitty Nursery book)
Time spent: Started December 30th and finished January 5th. Knitted about 1.5hr/day
A first: picking up (39) stitches!
Yarn: white Red Heart Soft Baby Steps yarn (bought at JoAnn) and various colors I had in my stash.
Tools: Knitted with 5 DPN (2 DPN for the detailing). I’m really pleased with the (mostly) lack of yarn ladders! I really enjoy knitting with DPN now, it’s getting easier every time.
Future plans: I would like to make myself a pair of hens and knit/crochet a couple of eggs for Easter, but planning is not my best point ;).
