I was visiting a friend whose family has a small farm, when I came upon this little guy.
He’s quite an interesting character. I thought it would be neat to try and use his coloring to come up with a color palette from available yarns. For example, using Cascade 220 I might pick

2431 chocolate heather (for the darker red brown)
2435 japanese maple (for the lighter red brown)
8555 black (the black feathers)
8622 Camel (the lighter color from the feet)

It’s actually a fun game to play. Take any picture, pick out 4 or 5 colors from it, and try to find something close in a yarn line you like.
