March hare...

Sarah is back to her normal bunny cuteness, although her eyes are a little blurry and unfocused. That’s what happens when they fall out in the wash and are repaired by an inept seamstress.

This pink and mauve hat was knit using 3 strands of yarn (two worsted weight and one DK) and a 16” circ size 8mm (US11).

See that little Christmas ornament with the sparkly face? K made it in grade 3 or 4 so it’s about 50 years old. It’s true – Styrofoam lasts forever.

The little red hat is knit in a fluffy worsted weight yarn of unknown fibres or vintage on 4.5mms (US7). It took less than half a ball to knit. The pattern is the APPLE HAT from the KnitList site. I left off the stem and leaves.

I hope your week is a peaceful one.

“Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone,
Kindness in another's trouble,
Courage in your own.”
