It’s a question for the ages, and now you can
visualize this timeless conundrum with a most
philosophical knitted toy — a reversible chicken
and egg! Knitting and toys go together very well.
The three-dimensional effect of knitting in the
round makes for a free-standing, huggable new
friend, and some simple assembly techniques
transform it into an interactive toy.
When you’re feeling confused about something,
you can just play with your chicken and egg buddies
and imagine what it’s like for them! »
