Now some of you are mystified as to whether the chicken jackets are for me or for chickens. Well,here they are, very simple knitted coats ....... for chickens.
I laughed when I saw what my friend Julie was making but it does have a serious undertone. These little jackets are going to the local animal rescue centre where they have a number of rescued battery farmed chickens. These poor creatures because of how they are expected to live often end up with no feathers and in this very cold winter that we have been experiencing here in Britain they get cold. I think it is a great idea, takes very little time and yarn to knit and all for a good cause. I am wondering now as to how I make a patchwork chicken jacket. Now that would be fun.
