Booties and Bunnies

Here it is almost the last day of March, and would you believe we awoke yesterday to another dusting of snow? Was this an early April Fool's joke or what? The smart one in our family, our younger daughter, is back in Africa where the temps are nice and steamy. And from this far corner, came an email request for some girly booties. This was the push I needed to finish a set that was hibernating in my knitting bag. I tried something different on the hat, a new way of doing the design: following the heart chart in reverse stockinette and then weaving the multicolored yarn through the "bumps" to highlight it. I hope they're girly enough!

The local weather quirks don't seem to bother our resident rabbits. Yesterday they were out, mowing in tandem. We have the beginnings of our own version of Watership Down! No more tulips for us!
Muncha, Muncha!

Those little booties are cute as can be. Thanks for visiting my blog, and I'm delighted to find another knitter. I took up knitting in January and have been having a ball. You did a lovely job on David's and Sophia's socks back in January.
