Her name is Geraldine and the pattern is Cool chicken by Irene Duquette available free here.
Look at her lovely tail.
I realised whilst making the chicken that I'm becoming just a bit obsessive - I need to get out more - otherwise the house will soon be full of cute but useless crocheted animals.
So today I have NOT crocheted anything. Instead, Chris and I decided to go for a walk along the sea front. However, it was rather cooler today than anticipated, a bit windy, clouded over, so instead we thought we'd have a walk inland. By the afternoon this had been amended to a walk into the shopping centre (about a mile away) and call at the pub. It is St George's Day and what more of an excuse do the pub's need to sell the beer cheaper! We had a very pleasant afternoon in the company of a couple of pints of Bombardier bitter - putting the world to rights... and I didn't even miss the crocheting - so there's hope for me yet.
