Spring Chickens - Free Pattern from roman sock

I'm very eager for spring to arrive. There have been far too many cold winter days in March for my liking. I realize most of March is technically winter anyway, but it's supposed to be the end of winter and I'm just not prepared for such cold temperatures prevailing the whole month.

When I saw these cute crocheted chicks on roman sock, I thought they looked super easy and cute. They promise to stitch up quickly, just in time for Easter.

Spring. Good news indeed. Link.

Edit to add: I made a couple of these, too!  Here is my version. I thought he looked cute with a little tuft of hair on the top of his cube head.

Here he is with his buddy and the egg bunnies I made, all posing in front of the children's Easter baskets.

He looks a lot greener under the late night lights.

Craft Evangelist on Art Fire

If you came here from Containers and Compartments, welcome to my craft blog!

While I have an Etsy shop, I have since joined Art Fire. It's still in its beta stage, so it will be cool to be in on the ground floor of a new site and community there. Also, total bonus, Art Fire has no listing fees and takes no commission on your sales. You can list up to 10 items at any one time totally free. Or you can buy a verified account for $20US per month. Right now members can buy a verified account, however, for only $12US per month, for life. Since I heard they were going pretty fast and I can quit my membership at any time, I decided I didn't have much to lose. Right now, the items listed on Art Fire are identical to my Etsy shop, I copied all my listings to Art Fire.

Since I've paid for my first month upfront, it's also an incentive for me to get my online market presence re-vamped and get going with some of my new ideas, especially related to the mission of this blog.
