I think you are neater than...
I found this on Pinterest and I have never heard this saying before, but really - it was meant for me!!! LOL -- two of my most favorite things, socks and chickens. And I do think that every single one of you who reads this blog is neater than socks on a chicken!
So I decided to put this saying into my own images....ta dah!!!
Yep, my chickens have arrived and aren't they spiffy! What you couldn't tell from the image on Amazon was that there is glitter on them too. Oh I love sparkly stuff!
And they come apart and you could group them this way too!
I'm not sure exactly where I'm going to place them yet. Even if I spray them with polyurethane I doubt they are going to last long outside. So, I'm thinking of getting a big flowerpot and weighting it and putting some floral foam in the pot and make a chicken stack for inside. I could enjoy them for many many years to come. (Oh my son - who purchased these chickens - told me "you know you're crazy, right?" - yeah I know- LOL!)
And here's a close up of the latest pair of socks I've finished. This is DROPS Fabel sock yarn.
I love sock yarn with varying widths of stripes. I don't think I've seen purple, pink and chartreuse-y green in a sock yarn before. I bought this yarn in 2 more colorways and I can't wait to see how they knit up.
It was another busy day - lots of errands. I hope to get some sewing time in real soon as I finally figured out how I'm going to do the border on the chicken quilt - stay tuned!
And remember I think you are neater than socks on a chicken!
