Its been an interesting week! Car had its MOT, parents night for the little terrors, gaming with some friends, meeting up with other friends for a mooch and to attend the local Pokémon Go event…
But lets backtrack a bit to explain this week’s knitting.
Parents evening. Both of mine received plenty of nice comments, and nothing really negative other than trying to get them to slow down and double check their work before handing it in. It’s a big ask for a 4 year old and an 8 year old!
One thing that became clear though was that in Inklings class they had been learning about chickens, and had been incubating eggs which had hatched…
And he’s obsessed with the fluffy things. Taking one look, I could have pocketed all four of them there and then and made a run for it.
I successfully passed my willpower roll, and jokingly mentioned it to Inkling. He searched all of my pockets, twice, just in case, and was somewhat sad that I hadn’t stolen a chick.
There was only one option.
Its based on the free pattern Spring Chick by Barbara Prime, except I made mine fluffy. Outbreak immediately claimed it as hers. Once rescued from the cat, the chick was put in my pocket for the next morning…
Inkling was super happy with his chick, and insisted he could take it to school to show it to the other chicks. In all the excitement, I realised Felix was feeling a little left out.
There was only one option. Again.
So here is chick number two. And Outbreak again. Who tried to claim this one also.
I am doing my best to ignore the urge to knit a third chick just for the cat!
Until next post, take care!
