Urban Aran Update and the Menagerie
First, a little detail of the central cable in the middle of the back of the Urban Aran:
Next, something I've been trying to get a picture of for a long time, the baby goats standing and climbing on top of the llama. They love each other so, they love to climb on him and sit on him, alas the picture is fuzzy, but you can still see what's going on!
My progress so far on the back of the Urban Aran, I'm at 11.5 inches, at 14.5 inches you start doing the underarm decreases. Note for Magatha, I am knitting the cardigan zip up version ala Brooklyn Tweed. I'm knitting this tight and thick, and envision it as a light jacket for me this winter!
I've been asked if all the animals get along. So far, so good. Telebear snorgles Florence the ewe:
We were worried a bit about the dogs and the sheep/goats. But, at this stage, they've totally worked it out. We can let the dogs out into the pasture, and they sheep will run up to them and sniff em all over. I think the facts that we have non-agressive dogs without strong prey drives and that they share a fence help.
Edited to add: I'm pretty sure that the mystery squashes are green pumpkins! After searching the internets, and getting advice from friends and blog readers, I'm going with pumpkins.
Ooooh! And, it's my 2 year blog-iversary today!
