Now I enjoy knitting a sophisticated sweater or an intricate lace shawl just like anyone else... but sometimes you just need to go for a project that is entirely abstract.
Knitted goat anyone?
I knit this little guy for my cousin's baby boy who is 2 years old and finds goats absolutely fascinating. They are his current favorite animal.
This little boy was also the recipient of this cabled sweater from a few years back and his parents were thrilled. I love giving knitted gifts to worthy and grateful recipients. :)
I am sending this little knitted goat off in the mail as a surprise.
It's not the real thing.. but hopefully he'll love it anyway.
Pattern found HERE for those of you who need a break from the traditional.
