Miss Bunny's spring outfit. She's wearing a peasant top in a cotton fabric and japanese style gardening pants. All fabrics are cotton and vintage.

I'm almost done with the knit bunny as you can see. Now I am just working on shaping her neck and I'll begin knitting her ears and shaping her face. The alpaca is so soft and I'm taking my time knitting this bunny. We should have lettuce from the cold frame soon. Yippee! The daffodils are sure that winter is over now.

cold frame that Oz built and it works so well that lettuce and rosemary plants overwintered and lived. Look at all the green! Oz and I have been working in the garden cleaning things up. It feels good to be outside and working in the garden again.
I have also finished a new hat based on the Aran jumper design. I have a few books on this type of knitting and here is a bit from Wikipedia :: (Irish Gaelic: Geansaí Árann) is a style of jumper that takes its name from the Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland. It is sometimes known as a fisherman's jumper. A classical fisherman's jumper is a bulky garment with prominent cable patterns on the chest, often cream-coloured.
I decided not to use a cable this time but knit a decorative checkerboard pattern instead. I used 100% wool yarn (Aran) from Maggie's Farm. It turned out so well and would be a perfect size for a young girl or teenager. I'm working on another hat with the same pattern but it will fit an adult.
