My first, whole knitted farmyard set (minus the goat who was made in December) has finally been completed.
This set includes one bay horse (I've decided it's a Cleveland Bay), A Holstein cow, A Gloucestershire Old Spot pig, a Suffolk sheep, and two chickens (who were originally supposed to be Barred Rocks, but apparently you can't get "barred" yarn...). All the animals have been hand knit in 100% organic cotton yarn. Sooooo nice!
I must admit that I've taken a particular liking to the cow... She says her name is Molly, and she's quite amiable in temper. ;)
I have to show off the pig too! This is a different pattern from the first pig I made, and this new pig is now to scale with the rest of the animals! I think she is so cute! She fits perfectly in your hand (or in two hands of a child!), and she has a nice feel to her; compliments of the cotton yarn. :)
I do believe I shall name her, Charlotte.
And then there's the horse, of course....
He hasn't told me what his name is yet, but perhaps he'll tell his new owner...
Now, to finish the next set!
