Peter, What Were You Thinking? Or Was It Posie?


Rabbits! They are so cute and so destructive.  Two weeks ago we planted a beautiful crocosmia and were so happy when it started blooming.  Happy, that is, until almost all the flower stalks and leaves were chewed off. Peter/Posie was caught in the act, and now a fence is in place.  Oh well, it's a nice bouquet!


When I wasn't chasing rabbits, I was working on a couple of projects.  One of them is a pair of socks. The pattern is Dragonfly Socks (see Ravelry) from the fun Dragon swap last winter.  Dee, do you recognize the yarn?


Here's block eight of my Sunbonnet Sue TAST project.  Only four more to go!


The whole family is rejoicing because Madeline got to come home last Sunday after 26 days in the NICU. (She and Max are second cousins.)  I wonder how old she'll be before we get to MN again to see her up close?

Welcome home, Madeline!

The yarn you selected for the Dragonfly socks is perfect. It allows the lace pattern to shine.

My neighborhood is over-run with rabbits. They are cute until they start doing what rabbits do. I'm glad you were able to salvage the blooms.

Beautiful baby glad she is home. Beautiful flowers and love the socks, I got the second heel done. I have never knit anything except stockinette and ribbing. Someday I will try a simple pattern.
