tail feathers

Our son loves baby chicks. In fact, when picking out his guinea pig from the pet store, he picked a tiny, soft, yellow guinea pig that when held in our hands was as soft & downy as a baby chick. He even chose the name, Baby Chick for his guinea pig.

And since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, I'm going to crochet little critters for our 3 kids.

This oh, so cute pattern for this tiny bird is in the Jan. issue of Crochet Today.


So easy & so adorable!

I used Caron yarn in Soft Mint.


This yarn is by far, my most favorite to use. It is soooooooo soft & silky, the tactile experience of using this yarn is -- better than therapy. A very much within my budget.

Now. The girls will get some cute crochet critters too. I searching for a an adorable pattern for a horse & a giraffe......
