That Other Secret Project...

Pattern: Innisfree, Yarn: my handspun

Was for Tucker.

Given to this happy grandson of mine on his 1st Birthday last month.

Wonder if his parents know he had helped in it's construction over the summer?

My mother picked out the buttons. Perfect, I think. 'Little Mathew' the teddy was my son's best buddy as a child.

I finished Listening to A Shepherd's Life
a while back often while working on Tucker's Sweater. I enjoyed it so very much. How thrilled I was to be able to attend a book talk and signing by it's author just last week in D.C. James Rebanks' newest work is filled with lovely photos from the Lake District region he farms in the UK.

Such and interesting talk covering so many topics ranging from food systems
to preservation issues, politics
landscapes, language,

 and yes, sheep :)

Perfect little sweater. Just perfect. Handspun from your sheeps?

Have you read any of The Yorkshire Shepherdess books yet? If not, add her to your list.

How beautiful. I love Aran knits. All he needs is a kilt to go with it. I just put these teddy bear buttons on a sweater as well. They are so cute. You do beautiful work.

Both are so good looking, but I must say that happy child wins my vote!
