Goat Herder “in Situ”

Last weekend my husband and I visited our oldest son, who lives in southern Oregon. It was the first time we saw him on his own turf, where he and two friends raise goats and chickens and take action against social injustice.

Here he is with some of his goats (we call them our grandkids). You might recognize the sweater he’s wearing — it’s the original Goat Herder Pullover. He’s also wearing a hat I knitted out of handspun yarn and, though you can’t see it, he’s wearing socks that I knitted him too!

It’s gratifying to know that he likes what I knit!
