Chicken Pattern Giveaway!!

Hi Knitters,
When I opened my mail today I got a sweet surprise. Sylvia at Blue Sky Alpacas sent me a little stack of the Knit Chickens pattern. I posted about the chickens, if you are interested, here. I was thinking this past month has been so much fun on the blog and ravelry and I am feeling the love!

Now I want to give some love back to you. I have 3 Knit Chicken patterns to give away! Leave me a comment to enter the contest. That means if you are an email subscriber, hop on over to my blog and leave a comment on the blog. Say hi, tell me about your chicken love, whatever you'd like, leave your name or something distinguishing on your comment.  
I am going to pick a winner pretty quick so enter quick! You can be from anywhere, I'll send it to you. I will pick 3 winners with a random number generator. I will post the winners on my next blog entry, who knows when but soon. 

Then those lucky chickens will need to email me (on my sidebar) to give me their mailing address. If you win, you will have 2 days after I post to email me. If 2 days pass and I haven't heard from you, I will then pick another winner.

Good luck, chicken lovers!  And we're off!
I made up these Sweet Pea Hats for another set of twins that needed a gift last week. It seems twins are everywhere these days. I guess it's the new trend: )
This is the third set of twins I have knitted Sweet Peas for since last fall. I have made 2 sets of sweet peas for boy/girl twins and one set of sweet peas of boy/boy twins over the last few months. 
These are teeny tiny hats. I can hold both of the hats on one hand. This set of twins was born 6 weeks early so teeny tiny is just right. I hope they do well, go home soon and that the hats will bring the parents a little joy during this difficult time.

On Ravelry some people have finished Sweetheart Hats and some have finished Sweetheart Washcloths. Take a look if you'd like.

Here are some patterns I am thinking about and you might like, too: 

Have a good Monday, Knitters. One last note, if you click on the little arrows in the new Twitter box you can see previous entries if you are interested. Thanks to those who are following me on twitter. I am still trying to figure the whole thing out, it's pretty fun.
best, susie

Hooray for giveaways! I don't know what it is about these chickens...but I love them! Now I'm tryiing to figure out how to make some ducks to go with the chickens...

Mim said...

Oh my you have no idea how excited I am. I have "real" chickens but a friend of mine lives in a town where she can't have any, I want to knit her a few birds to make her smile until she can move to the country. I so hope I win!

Bonney said...

I cannot tell you how much I want to get my hands on this pattern!! I am so smitten! You're little peapod hats are adorable!

PatQ said...

I would love a chance to win a chicken kit. I usually don't like things like that but these are so different. Really cute.

Leanne (Lunatic84) said...

I love the chickens!! I think they would look perfect in my best friend's parent's kitchen. I would love to win the pattern so I could make some for them for their anniversary next month!
Love your work, and your blog!

Oh! The Chicken patterns! My girl would have a fit! You see, we are planning to add chickens to our family this year to raise for eggs and to keep as "pets". My three year old has become obsessed with all things chicken! She constantly asks my husband when he will be building the coop for her chickens! She even asked if her chickens could go on a playdate with her friend's chickens!! How cute!
We have just gotten into the world of knitted animals--sheldon the turtle was our first-- and my girl is hooked! It would be so much fun to add chickens to our knitted menagerie!!
Keeping my chicken fingers crossed for a copy of that fabulous pattern!!

I love Chickens, eggs, the riddle 'What came first the Chicken or the Egg.' I have chickens in my kitchen decor. I eat chicken salad, chicken/corn soup, grilled chicken, bbq chicken, chicken in a bisket crackers, chicken and rice, fried chicken, baked chicken, the list could go on and on.

I absolutely love this pattern as well. I would knit them for my kids of course. I started to knit a year ago and have made 5 hats out of itty bitty hats. If it wasn't for you books I am sure I would have given up on this craft! I would love to try these chickens out.

Dawn said...

yea!!...I heart chickens...and roosters of course!

Jedimommy said...

The chicken pattern is awesome!!! I've already contacted Blue Sky Alpacas and the Wool Shack trying to get my hands on one of the patterns. I'm planning on knitting a striped one out of the Blue Sky Dyed Cotton in tomato and poppy as soon as I possibly can!!! Wish I had your design talent.

I have always wanted to decorate my kitchen with roosters and my husband isn't into it... but maybe these chickens could ease their way into our home without him noticing!! :)... and then before he knows it I'll have my rooster kitchen! That seems painless enough doesn't it?!

Jacqui said...

I found the Knit Chickens on Ravelry tonight, fell in love, and immediately searched for the pattern. Unfortunately there are none available at UK stockists :( so I emailed Blue Sky Alpacas to see if they could help. I can't believe you are offering the very same pattern as a giveaway! I'll keep my fingers crossed x

I love your chicken pattern! I am afraid to show it to my kids as they will want me to drop my other projects so I can knit them some :)

jachrist said...

I am a huge fan of chickens, knit or not. My former principal has chickens, and she let me name two of them. After she vetoed Cream Puff, Cupcake and Chipotle, she agreed to Henrietta and Sally Sunshine. I have modified the Marie Mayhew felted chick pattern to make felted snow chick Christmas ornaments for her the last three years. The last two were an angel and a skating chick. Next year's will be riding a bike!

Heather said...

Love the chickens....terrified of the real ones but Love these and I know my twoaugustgirls will....

My friend is battling cancer. She is also a chicken and rooster collector. I think a happy knit chicken would be just the thing to cheer her.

Anonymous said...

Came over your chickens at Ravelry just now. I wonder how my birds will react to find chickens on my balcony when they come for food. I live in a town and feed sparrows and tits under my table on the balcony during the winter.
Need the pattern first ;o)

MommytoAva said...

I have been smitten with stuffed chickens for some time and love the version in Itty Bitty Hats, but my little girl wants something bigger in which to store her play eggs in when she's not whipping up pancakes or cake batter in her pint-sized kitchen. These versions are adorable! Thank you for sharing such a cool giveaway! Best wishes!

Jocelyn said...

These kit chickens have to be the funkiest chickens around with their stripes and spots and rather 'healthy' appreance. They would surely light up anyone's kitchen counter!

Jessica said...

Goodness gracious would I love to have this pattern!

The chickens are adorable with a capital adore. My little girl would flip if I knit one of these! Pick me, random number generator!

I love the chickens. My first real research job after college was working with chickens, so they hold a special place in my heart. I think that my 2 year old daughter would love a knitted chicken.

The Andersons said...

Your chicken pattern is adorable. My 8-yr old son asked me to knit Lucinda Guy's Florian Fox for his birthday a few months ago. I think "Foxter" would appreciate a few chickens around the coop!

Shell said...

the color of my kitchen walls is the bird's egg blue and i have orange accents...these chickens would be a wonderful addition!!! I can't wait to knit them!

Hilary said...

I would love to knit a chicken for my mom. She kept chickens when we were growing up and I bought her chicks for Christmas one year. You should have seen her face Christmas morning when the new box under the tree (with holes hidden in back) started peeping and scratching. :-D

Those chickens are the cuddliest chickens ever. Who'd ever thought anyone would say a chicken is cuddly. I would love to have the pattern. Thanks Susan.

Jenn said...

Giveaways! Blog Candy! Yummy to my tummy! :-) I love these little chickens, and my "little" Ella Hope would absolutely adore them. I've been working on one of your Itty Bitty Hat patterns and thinking about those oh so... stinkin' cute chickens the entire time! Maybe they will be my next project?
Thanks for your inspiration and beautiful designs!

Thanks for the giveaway love. If I could I would have chickens in my backyard but I don't think the neighbors would appreciate that. Knit ones will have to do for now.

Love the chickens. Think they're going to make really cool gifts for my niece and nephew. Imagine when they open up their parcel (I'm in Korea, they're in Canada)! I'll give them clues but I don't think they're going to guess they'll be receiving chickens in the mail. By the way, that January 20th chicken post introduced me to Blue Sky yarns. And I ordered like it was Christmas and money grows on trees. I love being Santa to myself.

I'd love this pattern- my LYS is not getting it in. I have chickens, chickens on my checks. My blog is Country-Chicken. I definitely need to make some chickens.

We're a chicken loving family, just like yours....we have our own free range chickens, and according to my husband, I'm the queen of chicken recipes. Sounds familiar, I'm sure! Thanks for your generosity with these giveaways and for my opportunity to win.

Hi, I'd love to knit a chicken for my littlest one. Especially since we just celebrated Chinese New Year and she was born in the year of the rooster. One of her favorite things to say is, "cockadoodle-do, I love you!"

I love your books and patterns and always recommend the hats when a new knitter asks for a good baby hat pattern.

Ooooo! A giveaway! I'm geeked and love the fat ol' chickens!

Andrea Netzley said...

I saw these chickens on your earlier post and thought they were so cute. Of course me mind was racing to to figure out who I could make them for. The very next blog I read after yours was a friend of mine that after 4 long years of not being able to get pregnant and then being all lined up to adopt a little boy has now found out that she is pregnant herself. What a miricle. On her blog she was just posting a sneek peek at how they will decorate the babies room and it is going to be "vintage farm". Of course they can't have really chickens but these would be so cute. I just recently bought both your books and I am loving them, I would love to have this pattern as well!

Oh how I love this pattern - I grew up in Minnesota and we had chickens everywhere. Such great memories and this pattern brings back the memories!! Pick me!!

What I'd really like are some real chickens, but since I don't live on a farm (yet), I'll settle for some knit ones I can whip up!

I could make the chickens for my 5 year old son. Perhaps "chickie" could replace his current best friend "ring-y" which is... a red metal binder clip. Funny kid :)

I made the seaman's cap for my 5yo and 24yo sons this winter using Noro kureyon. I lined them with fleece using your tutorial and they are the warmest hats ever! You'll love them.
