Wednesday Farm Photo: Cheers!
(and the Knit Two Giveaway Winners)

Never Drink Alone on New Year's

And the random winners of the five hardcover copies of Knit Two by Kate Jacobs are:

Angelbis: I learned to knit as an adult and it has now been about 12 years and I'm going strong. I love to knit because I find it hard to do just one thing at a time, so knitting allows me to do something productive with my hands while reading, watching movies, sitting through academic talks or flying. I adore cables! As others have said, knitting is a great way to relax!

Uhmanduh: I love to knit baby things for all my friends havin' babies. ^_^ You can make stuff cuter than can be found in a store, and best of all, you're done in just a few hours. I have yet to attempt a sweater for myself! I always enjoy your farm foodie blog!

Soldierdeb: I have tried to learn several times - But this time I am sticking to it!

Zoomer1: I've just learned to knit in the last year and love it! I'm still very much a beginner, but it's a very relaxing and satisfying way to spend an evening by the fire.

Christine: How awful to have the flu over Christmas. It doesn't seem fair does it? I'm glad you had your mom there (and Joe, of course) to take care of you and I hope by now that you're feeling much better. I used to knit up a storm (and crochet, and do needlework), way back in the day when my kids were little. Until this winter I hadn't picked up a knitting needle in years. Now I'm feeling a bit "full circle-ish" as I've been bringing out my knitting needles and an old how-to book, thinking I just may start again. And what better way to begin again than with your generous giveaway of Knit Two. Happy New Year!

Congratulations! Please e-mail me your shipping address so I can send you your book. My e-mail address is farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com. And thanks to everybody for entering this fun giveaway. I loved reading about how so many of you are such avid and enthusiastic knitters!

© Copyright 2008, the award-winning blog where some of us are indulging in glasses of champagne for New Year's eve, and some of us must settle for slurping up fresh spring water out of buckets. And we all wish you a very Happy New Year—no matter what you're drinking!


  1. Happy New Year to everyone at the farm. And congratulations to everyone who won.

  2. Congratulations to the winners!

    I love that the ship have the stairstep thing going in this picture. Happy New Year and I hope you're feeling better.

  3. Fresh spring water sounds good to me - for humans or for the other creatures on your farm. There is nothing like it, no matter how much I like other things.... :-)
    I wish I could get better at knitting - I crochet often, but knitting has me at ends. Can you recommend any good books or other help to get me started again?

  4. I hope those sheep had a designated driver to get back to the barn. That spring water can sneak up on you.

    Happy New Year to all at the farm!

  5. Great photo of the sheep! Happy New Year!

  6. Happy New Year Susan! And much love xo


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love hearing about your experiences with my recipes. Comments on older posts are always welcome!

Please note that I moderate comments, so if I'm away from the computer it may be a while before yours appears.

I try my best to answer all questions, though sometimes it takes me a few days. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your e-visits to our farm!
