Presenting a little Easter duckie that I knitted.  I found the pattern on-line.

Anyway.. it's knitted from some old off-white fuzzy acrylic yarn w/out a label.. and other scrap acrylic yarns.

Mistake?  No... it's an Unexpected Design Element.  I put it there on purpose.  *ahem*

Thanks for putting the pattern link on for me-- I've been sick (bronchitis) and wasn't thinking clearly.   

Last year, I made some chickens that the egg slips under the bodies of the chicken.  (The plastic or real egg will rest sideways)  I'll see if I can find a photo and add it here and you can just look at the photo and figure it out too.  I didn't write anything down and you have to change the stitches/etc to allow for the differences in yarn.

*I just made 'how to' knit them up.. but, there are patterns like it out there.. just do a search.. or I'll see if I can figure out how do them again.  I sent one to my adult friends.. I figured you weren't too old for Easter cuteness.  Cheesy

Here they are.. They are easy to do.. knitted in one flat piece and then sewn together.  If you are interested- I'll try to write up a pattern.

Yes, that was my plan too.. chickens?? Humm..  I can use the yellow fuzzy yarn mixed w/ everything else.   And truthfully, I don't ever remember buying fuzzy yellow yarn in the first place. 

Some of the other chicks were much cuter- but, of course.. I forgot to take a photo before I had mailed those chickies off last year.

I even made one for all of my students last year.  It took way longer to do than I thought it would- but, once I got 12 made.. I had to keep going at that point.  I haven't decided if I'm going to make my class one this year or not?  The memory of excessive chickee knitting has faded.. but, has it faded enough?  To start the project again??
