Giveaway featuring LaughingChicken

Welcome to my very first GIVEAWAY, this is so exciting!

I’d like to introduce to you Jennifer’s beautiful knitted scarves, wraps and shawls from her Laughingchicken Etsy shop. I love the warm rich colors. Fall and winter are soon on their way, it’s always nice to wrap up in a cozy and styling scarf tossed over your shoulder.

Here's a bit about Jennifer -

From as far back as I can remember, I have always loved to craft! When I was a little girl, I didn't just play house, I played "17th century house" or "middle ages house" and incorporated some craft into it from that era. So now I am just a grown up girl still playing my favorite game!

People always ask me, "where did laughing chicken come from"? My mother didn't teach me how to cook, but she did teach me to look at life with a sense of humor. We always had a rubber chicken hanging in the kitchen, and I still have one today. It is a reminder to look for the fun in everyday things.

Right now my everyday fun consists of life filled with family, friends, faith, and knitting something beautiful every chance I get! I think I do things backwards where knitting is concerned...Rarely do I find a pattern and then look for yarn to make that item. Instead I find interesting yarn and then see the item in my mind that it should become.

One of the best things about knitting is sharing your work with others. It's a wonderful feeling when someone wears something I have created, and I am so excited to be sharing my work with Jalinda's blog readers in this giveaway! - Jennifer
