... the sky is falling ! does it count as a stashbuster if you only use 31 grams of cotton?! the yellow for the body is dale's kolibri, and the other chicken parts are double stranded embroidery floss. i tried my best to embroider the eyes, but i could not manage to get them to come out the same, so i popped in some plastic safety eyes instead ... which, probably will make this wall art vs. a usable pot holder.
the pattern is from a booklet by annie's attic, the _ultimate book of pot holders_ , book #873151. peaches & creme yarn is used for most of the designs. since i don't have any of that in my stash, i substituted. the kolibri is a finer gauge, so, my chicken isn't as large as the sample in the booklet.
for stashbusting, i am starting to lean more towards smaller projects. i will continue to work on my aran afghan, but i need to see more progress with quicker to make projects .....
all of these cute pot holder patterns makes me wish i had more cottons in my stash! continue to read up on my other knitterly happenings on my blog.
