Magnificently Silly Knitting Project of the Week: Miko and Robbie’s Farm Sweaters

Miko, co-owner of Amy’s LYS, The Purple Purl, loves an interesting knitting project. And boy, her latest one definitely qualifies!

The original pattern and concept.

Meet “The Farm Sweater”. Based on the “Pastoral Pullover” pattern from the 1979  knitting book “Wild Knitting“, it’s a sculpture more than a garment.

It started simply enough….

Many knitters got involved, making pom-poms, i-cord and other embellishments to complete the scene.

Mid-construction.

Not one to be outdone, friend of The Purple Purl Robbie decided to get in on the game, too. He wanted a sweater, too!

When they were complete, Miko and Robbie visited local Riverdale Farm for an appropriately-themed photoshoot.  It’s worth clicking through to see the details… the sweaters have fields complete with crops, little dolls to represent the farmers, forests – and, naturally, sheep.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shhell to
    her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if
    you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how
    you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes
    are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    At this time it sounds like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform
    available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that
    what you are using on your blog?
