My Knitted Chicks

OK..... I have been wanting to do this post for a really really REALLY long time now.....11 months to be exact. The reason why I have not posted it until now is, that it was part of a shipment sent as Secret Pal to Blayne, who was to be kept in the dark about my identity from October 10th 2010 to October 10th 2011. 

Recognize the front chick? Well it was the one I originally made in Februay last year to figure out if I could knit one following Anjie's how-to. When I made those fuzzy chicks (those three was shipped to Blayne) I made a lot of trials with the fuzzy yarn, until I altered the how-to a bit and combined both a fuzzy yarn string and a regular cotton string when knitting the chicks.

Soon after those four chicks was followed by several others as friends and family suddenly wanted one of those chicks, that I had in my appartment. Follow the link to the post with the original post if you want the original how-to from Anjie - It it takes me about 2 hours to make a finished chick and you need no more that basic skills to knit them, as in super-easy :o)
