feeling crazy

Friday, April 28, 2017

Our weather is showing signs of summer.  SO fun!  
I certainly don't mind knitting with wool in the summer.  The feeling on my legs is perfectly fine with me.  However, a cotton is pretty cool, too.  And, in denim?  Oh yea.  
This week, I started the Crazy Feeling Sweater.  I made the Pop Life Cardigan last year and absolutely love it.  With the Pop Life I used dirty denim but decided to make this one out of the raw denim.  On size 10.5 needles it's a dream.  All kits include needles, but this time decided to use my own circulars.  
(There are four in there.  I think they just have to get used to the crazy camera.)
And because I went all crazy, I rented chickens!  Not really crazy.  Brilliant in my eyes.  We get the whole chicken experience with eggs as a bonus.  And... they come and pick the sweet girls up in the fall.  Unless of course we decide to adopt them.  That option is available.  I think this concept is absolutely wonderful.

  1. I love the idea of rented chickens! Being a chicken farmer in the winter is challenging. We've had anywhere between two and five hens at any given time during the last ten years, and I'm not sure I could say goodbye to them after a few months without shedding a tear though. Those knitting kits are tempting! That color is yummy too! Ahh! summer! it can't come soon enough around here.

    1. Wow. 10 years of chickens... I can see how it can be hard to say goodbye. We already get such a kick out of these girls. The eggs are just the added bonus! :)

  2. Renting chickens is a totally new concept for me. It sounds quite wonderful for you all and for the chickens, too.

    That denim cotton yarn is also wonderful. xo
