Blonde Chicken Boutique Interview


This Blonde Chicken passionately makes sustainable and colorful yarn from her home in Johnson City, TN. Stop by her booth and give her a Seattle welcome this December 4th and 5th at Seattle Center.

UCU: What day of show traditions are you bringing to UCU 2010?
: I always start the day with the biggest coffee I can find. That, and my lucky striped kneesocks!

UCU: If you have pets, introduce them and tell us a bit about them!

Beauregard is my bagle pup (beagle + basset), who serves as security and (sniffy) investigations.
Beau begs

Andre is grumpy middle-management + complaint department.

Stella is Vice President of Cute and Counselor of the Nap.
Stella loves a nap on sheep fleece

UCU: If you could sum up your work in one word, what would that be?
: Squooshy. Fun. Colorful. (I can't pick one!)

UCU: What gift are you most excited to give this year?
I'm crocheting little lucha libre dudes for my little brothers. They are totally into wrestling right now and I love that I can give them a handmade gift that they'll really play with!

UCU: What are you nibbling on as the snow falls this winter?
: Peppermint mochas, gluten free sugar cookies and many many apple crisps.

UCU: Favorite handmade item you have? It could be made by you, gifted to you or something you picked up.
For my wedding, my husband's grandma's best friend gave us a crocheted throw. We snuggled under it for the first few years of our marriage and now I keep it in a maple chest. I just love it to pieces.
