Remember when I bought some new yarn and the one skein I wasn’t totally happy with was the dark pinky purple?  Well, look what that turned into:

That’s another knitted chicken pattern from Susan B. Anderson.  That purple ended up in my bag right next to the lime green Cascade 220 leftover from my Jamie hat.  It hit me like a ton of bricks.  (This in-the-bag color combo idea happened with my Henry hat too!)  And now  I am IN LOVE.  Seriously, I love her.  (Is it a her?  I don’t know enough about chickens to know…)  Despite what I recently said about my kids and knitted toys, I am keeping her for myself!  She’s mine, all mine!!

Look at that sweet face!
