Kooky Chook Pincushion


Here is my Kooky Chook Pincushion made by me last year.
It is loosely based on the fabric chicken pincushions that you see on
the internet.
It is made with vintage cord for the body and a newly spool knitted
felt for the comb and beak and blue plastic beady eyes
Sometimes, with my purchases of vintage boxed spool knitters, there
is a cord included. I hate to throw away someone's work, and this
particular cord had quite some length to it.
So, I hope you approve of what I have turned this
vintage cord into - I love it!

That is fun. I think I might go and find my spool I have had since a child and make one!

This is so sweet - and also I think it´s time to say hello again! To you and my spill knitters. I have neglected them for too long!

A big HELLO to you, Susanne! - it is great to hear from you!
I would like to think that I am encouraging others to get back to spool knitting!
