|My Handknit cow sweater...complete with pink udder|
|And a sassy pink tongue.|
|A Three year project.|
|The Gap version....available 2012 at the Gap|
About 27 years ago, while preggars with Boy Child, I had a notion to knit him a sweater with a cow on it. Being a lover of black and white cows, I decided it had to be a good old fashioned milking cow. I found a pattern and after about 2 years (if I remember correctly), and many, many hours of frustration the Cow Knit was done. It was a very tricky knit...carrying the various colours behind the knit to make the cow. Once my children were grown, it went to a family member in New York, where the mom was literally stopped a few times in the street to see if she would sell it or knit one for them. She didn't hand it over, but it was lost in the shuffle of a divorce for a bit. Through a bit of good luck the sweater was returned to me. Just in time for the Raz Grand Baby to wear it.
Now you can just go to the Gap and buy one...I saw them there the other day. No need to buy one from a kid off the street or get your divorce lawyer involved.
