Help! My house has been invaded by …… CHICKENS???

It’s that time of the year again:  THE ANNUAL POTHOLDER SWAP.  And since the regular hosts couldn’t do it this year, Michele and I are the 2012 guest-hosts.

Now, the most difficult part about this swap is finding a pattern, especially because you have to make 5 of the same. Plus there is a lot of peer-pressure since some of these people make  insanely nice pieces of art that will never be used as potholders. See  chalklegs for example. After going back and forth a trillion times, I eventually settled on the chickens. And ever since, the house has been a mad  hen-house.

The potholder swap also requires a tag for each potholder (yarn, pattern, who made it, etc.), but since these are chickens, I deviated from the tag and made them each their own little birth-certificate. I’m a good chicken-midwife!!!!!
