everyday inspirations: knit chickens
Usually the Everyday Inspirations feature is something from my home that is there all the time or for a long time, and that I am inspired by. This one is a bit of a stretch for the category, but I thought you'd all enjoy these knit chickens as much as I have.
My grandpa's sister knit these a long time ago, and they were recently found and came out for Easter. They are much like the person who made them: a little odd, but you gotta love 'em!
If you can't tell just by looking at them, each is filled with an Easter egg! Although, technically, I think you're supposed to use a real egg (and not just for the holiday) and place them at your table.
I'm not sure how to knit these, and I don't know that anyone would want to, but you can see they look pretty simple. If you're a knitter who likes to experiment a little, maybe you'd like to figure out a pattern and share it with us?
UPDATE: Julie shared the pattern you can use to make some just like this! Find it here. (Thanks, Julie!)
