FO: "Bantamime, La Poule Francais"
 
One more chicken and then I promise no more... for a while anyway. This is "Bantamime" (clever word play, n'cest pas?) The French Hen, who has the distinction of being a chicken NOT based on the Blue Sky Alpaca pattern by Susan B,. Anderson. She is a one-of-a-kind, and likely always will be since I was making her up as I went along and can't remember exactly how many stitches went where. I just remember thinking I should subtitle the project "Adventures in Magic Loop (And Various Perversions Thereof)".



The yarn was leftovers from my previous two chickens, mostly Jojoland Baritone from the Hockey Chicken, but you might also recognize that orange Cotton Ease from the UK Chicken in her feet.



The idea was to make a gift that was unique. And judging from my girlfriend's reaction, I think the mission was successful. Bantamime has a Perch of Honor, from which she can oversee all operations.

BTW, the pattern isn't a deep dark secret or anything, it's just that I never wrote it down, so there's nothing to link to. If you're interested, I'll be happy to share what I can remember.

That's the best chicken yet! Well done. And it can't be mass produced for McDonalds giveaways.

I do like this chicken, very French, very sophisticated, somewhat nautical. A great succes and a fitting evolution from the hockey ancestor.

Groan.

I knew there was a good pun in there somewhere.

At least there was no "tail of woe" involved. Though there were a bunch of "woes" in the tail. Har.
