KP-Farmgirls' Stocking Cap

I knit the Farmgirls’ Stocking Cap for my eleven-year-old daughter Julia. As I was snapping the photographs for this cap, we stopped by our neighbors’ farm to chat and visit Kayla’s cows. Kayla grew up as a farmgirl here on our hill. I asked her if she might like to try on Julia’s cap for some photos. She said okay, and I started taking pictures. Then Kayla asked me if I wanted a photo of her riding her steer Ferdinand. “Wow – that would be great,” I said. And up she climbed. She rubbed Ferdinand’s head and he was in heaven. Then Kayla asked me if I wanted a photo of her standing on Ferdinand. “You can do that?” I asked. Kayla said she would try. Up she went and away I snapped.

Farmgirls are such fun, aren't they? Make your farmgirl, farmboy, city girl or city boy a stocking cap of their own. They will thank you for it!
