Water and chickens

Miss Tizz & the X-man have been going to swimming lessons each day this week, and thoroughly enjoying being in the heated pool in the middle of winter.



And I've been procrastinating about work again (how unusual!), and had some fun making a couple of little amigurumi chicks. I blame Chicken Betty! I hadn't heard of amigurumi before I started following her blog, and while I don't normally do cute, these are a big hit with the kids (and pretty quick to make).













In the process of making the chicks, I have learnt to make a Magic Ring and how to decrease properly in crochet.

I didn't ask about taking photos - I just made sure I zoomed in on my kids in case anyone questioned me.

I'd love to borrow the sequel - thanks :)
