Here is number 3 for the JTA entries. This is a "merry-go-round" pattern, so called because the stitches go up and down past the equator. I like the way this one looks, but I may have to do another one for my entry, this one did not turn out very even. You will notice that there is not a picture of either of the poles! It's only my second one with this pattern though, so I am improving.
We spent Saturday at Bengston's Pumpkin Farm. There was a petting zoo. P didn't actually pet any of the animals, but he did provide a piece of carrot to one of the kangaroos.
C of course petted everything. There were goats and sheep and calves, and llamas, and kangaroos, and a zebra, and a camel, and an eland.
After the petting zoo we went on a hay-ride with no hay, through the pumpkin patch, through the haunted barn, and the shop, through the fun-barn which C remembered from last year, and had a small snack.
I love this picture of P checking how big his sister is. When it came to his turn, he stood on tiptoe, which probably gave a more accurate measurement. There was quite a hollow where scores of people have stood to get their picture taken.
Here's the whole gang waiting for the tractor ride. It would have been more fun if it had been a little warmer, but we managed to enjoy ourselves. There are more pictures on my flickr site if you are interested.
