    If you were going to crazy with a yarn, this one is a good choice! My chicken is coming along – about done with the body and ready to make it’s little head. The KAL on the pocast will be in full swing next week and I’ll start posting pictures then. Thanks! I’m so glad we did this contest – it’s been so much fun!

    Hi Kathy,
    I was just out for a run listening to your latest podcast when I heard you clucking and talking about chickens for your new KAL. I listened harder and then I realized you were talking about the pattern I had just designed for BSA that was introduced at TNNA.

    I designed and knitted the chickens last summer for them and am so excited they are getting such a great response! I posted some pictures of my daughter and a variety of shots of the chickens from different angles before I sent them off to BSA. You can check it out here if you are interested:


    I can’t wait to see what people come up with for new and fun embellishments, too. Have fun and let me know if I can help!

  17. Susan B Anthony Coin Says:

    Following World War I, everybody wanted peace. Some Americans wanted it so badly that they petitioned for a peace dollar and got it. Unfortunately, by the time the design was finished, peace turned out to be nothing more than a small word on the back of the coin. In a nod to classical ancient styling, the designer used a Roman spelling for the motto In God We Trust, using a V instead of a U. This simple change accounts for a large portion of the phone calls received by dealers every day: New owners of peace dollars think they have a rare error. Peace dollars were made from 1921 to 1935. The first year had an unusually high relief that was lowered in subsequent years. All dates are available and affordable, although the 1928 and 1934-S can be a challenge in nice condition
