Francis the calf.

Jenny had a bull calf early on 7th October. He's a cheeky chap and was up and bouncing around within minutes. All black, too. Must be a Kiwi.

candlelight hottie cover

I needed another hottie cover because on really chilly nights it's pleasant to have two - sometimes essential. I have borrowed a book of knitting stitches from a friend and I thought this would be a good project to try some out, meaning it didn't matter too much if it didn't really work out. The main stitch is called candlelight and the stitch on the top is a slip stitch pattern called counterpoint quilting. The wool I dyed with mulberry fruit and the colour didn't really go with anything else so this is where it's ended up.
