This is easy to knit and so fun! I like that the chicken fits your head all around and the the eyes comb and beak are simple and fun, not goofy. Love it!!

Its so neat looking on my lanyard, I think the best part is all the question about it I get, did someone say...? Yes, I know I heard it 10/10 I would roll again!

"So, a meeple and a drill press walk into a bar..."

Back in 2000, I had my first beaded jewelry making lesson from some of the best in an artist's community in the mountains of north Arkansas. I'm still at it today! I teach jewelry making courses and have worked for 4 great bead shops throughout the mid-south.

Carcassonne was the first board game I learned to play outside the realm of Monopoly and Scrabble. Meeples, little wooden people shaped pieces, will always be my favorite game bits.

In 2010, a friend and owner of Labyrinth Puzzles & Games in Washington, DC mentioned in passing that game piece earrings would be fun. I agreed! I agreed so much so that I was the owner of a shiny new drill press a few days later. Many meeples were bravely sacrificed while I learned how to make them into charming little accessories: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pkm_eUUKvEM

I still make lots of accessories outside of the board game milieu - but they all have a fun (and sometimes silly) flair. If you're lucky, you'll see the occasional knit chicken hat in stock!

I take pride in the time and skill I put into each piece. I also work hard to keep them affordable without sacrificing quality materials. I make sure my materials are consistent, and that I know my suppliers well.

Most importantly, I want you to have as much fun wearing these pieces as I had making them! I keep adding new items simply because I have a good time designing and making them :)
