More farmyard fun



Knitting is coming along rather well in the final stages of putting our farmyard together. The girls can not resist playing with it while I am knitting it! It's cracking me up b/c I am literally at one end of the playmat knitting it together and the girls are at the other end touching it,playing with toys on it,rolling on it.... LOL
I think this will be a hit with both of them once it's all done.

C being a roly poly and playing with a squirrel on it.


K playing with a horse in the hayfield.

A happy squirrel on the pebble road

This really made me laugh. A random car driving on the farm!

I LOVE the farmyard playmats! My daughter did 1 for her three children and it is one of their favorite toys. I chuckle too when I see some of the things that come to play there! Who knew T-Rexs love cabbage! Anyway, I would love to make one too, but we have a pact...we don't have the same toys. So, she has the farmyard playmat and I have the gnome house! Looking forward to seeing your completed project!

It's turning out lovely & it looks bigger than I thought it would be...how big is one square? And how can I get my hands on a copy of the pattern?

Thank you :)

Kimara-thats so funny!! I guess T-Rexs need their veggies huh? LOL. I would loveto see pics of your daughters..oh and your gnome house!! :)

Saganaga- If I remember right each square is 12".. I think... It will end up smaller in the end though b/c it gets felted. The pattern is in the premier issue of Living Crafts. I have a link to their website in my link section. HTH!

That is so cute! I never would have thought of doing something like that myself, even if I could knit. Wow, maybe it's time to learn!

Nicole (farmergopi) said...

Jennifer- YES! Now is the time to learn :) One of my best friends taught me 2 years ago and I am addicted!

the farmyard is so cool!

can you tell me what kind of yarn is used for the hay field --the yellow/orange combo? thanks!

Nicole Spring said...

Thanks! I am not sure of the name of the colorways but all the yarn is from knit picks an it is their 'wool of the andes' line. hth!!
