Two things (of many) that make me happy inside: chickens and knitting. Really!
As I try to find examples and practices of each in my daily life, I have been quite pleasantly surprised to notice how many combined instances there are.
Case in point:
To celebrate Fun Friday (a mostly weekly event around here), we watched Disney's animated "Robin Hood". Well, there in the opening credits was Lady Cluck - a KNITTING CHICKEN!
Hanging out at the library, I spied this book:
I think this family is technically a family of ducks, but I won't quibble over the poultry. The mother only knits on the cover (what's with that?), but there it is: KNITTING POULTRY!
I did recently spy a western/circus book with a cowboy knitting a purple scarf with chickens running around on the same page. Close, very fun, but not a direct hit.
Do let me know if you see any knitting chickens around, would you?
