Knitting pattern couldn’t have a better home

UPDATE (13 April, 2011): We have now made the pattern available to anyone to download. Please go to this page where you will find the links. Enjoy!

I’ve suspected for some time that I’m working with a bunch of jokers. However we now have official acknowledgment that this is, indeed, a fact.

When an impromptu “best” joke competition was instigated by Farmers Weekly among the denizens of Twitter, it turns out to have been none other than our very own Certification Manager, Steve Clarkson, who came up with the “best” offering.

And his prize? A stunning Farmers Weekly tractor knitting pattern. Now, in many offices this would be filed under amusing and end up in a draw. But not at Organic Farmers & Growers. Oh no. Among our multi-talented team is a master knitter (is there a proper word for that?) in the form of Certification Officer, Katie Owens. As I write Katie is obtaining Steve’s measurements and planning colour schemes. Obviously when we have the finished product Steve will be forced to model it for all to see.

You won’t be surprised to hear that it wasn’t this offering from Steve that won the joke competition:

What do you get when you cross a rooster and a cow? Cockadoodlemoo!

No, the effort that tickled the fancy of the FW team was:

What kind of milk comes from a forgetful cow? Milk of Amnesia.

Are you laughing out loud?
