I really like how it turned out. Today, I pulled it out to photograph it. And also thought about weaving in teh ends, but alas, the ends are still there for you all to see =)
My oldest was hanging out with me and we decided we needed to come up with a name. We weren't really coming up with anything all that great. And as I was photographing, I realized what it reminded me of
As the daughter of a farmer, every spring it was a big deal to see who could spot the plants coming up in the fields first. I'm pretty sure only one year did I spot some sprouts before my dad - he was pretty good at it and spotted them first for sure. And when I turned the washcloth just so, it reminded me of the fields, freshly plowed and planted, and us anxiously awaiting to see the sprouts come up. So Farmer's Field it is. I wrote down the pattern (Okay, okay, I had to start knitting a second one because it is a million times easier for me to write what I am doing as I do it as opposed to looking back and seeing what I did!) So without further ado, I present to you, my first free pattern!
