Mother hen

One of my colleague is expected his first child (a boy) at the beginning of May. He and his wife have chickens, so as a gift, I thought a knitted one would be a good idea.
On FB, I've posted the building up steps of the hen, and my friends loved it so I thought I should post it here as well:

Finally, this is how it looks like:

I can't wait to see their faces when I'll give it to them!
Have a nice weekend...

Tic Tic Tic

As promised, an overview of the knitted projects I've completed this year so far...
The latest one is for CraftHope project 16 (Lyon hat, free Ravelry pattern here)

A simple crocheted blanket for my friend Lisa's baby, Matthew. I've also made a matching mouse. I shall bring these to its owner in Amsterdam in a couple of weeks...

 Ribbed baby jacket (free pattern on Ravelry here). I still have to buy a button for this one!

Easy fingerless mittens (free Ravelry pattern here)

One of my ongoing project: a hen (Alan Dart pattern). This one is for my colleague's baby (due in May so I have some time to complete it). I've changed the pattern slightly...I am knitting it in the round because I don't like sewing!

I also have a pair of socks on the go but this is for another post...
