The one in which I show off my finished Slouchy Cardigan at the zoo....

Pattern: Slouchy Cardigan by Helene Roux (Greetings from Knit Cafe)
Yarn: Patons Classic Wool in Moss Heather
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony Options
Mods: I used A Friend to Knit With's directions for the cap sleeves but other wise I pretty much followed the directions. I found the directions for the hood hard to follow but I managed to get it done. I would knit this again in a heart beat. It wasn't an exciting knit due to the all stockinette but it was nice to be able to watch tv or knit in the car.

But on a side note, The Folsom Zoo was awesome! I'd been begging Hubbs to take me to the zoo for while and we figured today would be a good day to go. They were predicting rain for today but it was nice and sunny this morning, so we took advantage.

Hubbs and Bambi. This deer kept following up us and down the fence line. We were able to pet it and I think it wanted to eat Hubbs face.

Of all the animals there I loved the deer the most. They were so pretty.

The tigers were so amazing. They look like huge house cats.
There were so many beautiful and amazing animals. I can't wait to go back again.
