c is for calf
i was too late to join the abc-along, but couldn't resist the c.
tippy tail (my favorite cow) just had a baby bull calf last week. dd took the photo. we have one more baby bull, daisy is the mom, no photo of him yet.
cathy, they are from our charolais bull :-) the mamas are black!
swatching, swatching. couldn't decide what to knit for harlot's olympic knit challenge, then i saw this knitting off the cuff team. we don't need no stinking patterns ;-0
the yarn is jamieson's soft shetland, from when they had their close-out sale. color is peppercorn, and i wish i had more, it's a lovely brown-green tweed with flecks of rust. i'm thinking ganseyish design, with this rib from nancy bush's knitting on the road conwy socks as the hem. plain body, and maybe a modification of the rib in the yoke. my man doesn't care for fussy sweaters. it's tough designing a man's sweater that's fairly plain, but still attractive and not too boring to knit.
plain stockinette and yummy wool, what could be finer?
p.s. thanks for all the basket compliments :-) i think i emailed everyone privately, but if i missed someone, thanks!
