My current work in progress:

Seaforth designed by Alice Starmore, knit in British Breeds 5-ply Guernsey Wool on US 3 needles.


Hoppy Easter

First things first, the winner of my review copy of Wanderlust: 46 Modern Knits for Bohemia Style by Tanis Gray is Vicki K., who has been emailed.

Very little work has been done on Ropewalk over the past week because I keep doing things like this:


This is Flora. She has gone to live with my friend who is undergoing chemo. She was knit from the adorable pattern by Julie Williams. Her bunny dress was knit from the basic dress pattern included with the bunny girl pattern, and I inserted my own bunny chart. It’s bunny overload!

And then I spent the weekend working on the Outlander MKAL. No photo, because it’s a mystery and I don’t want to post any spoilers!

Lastly, here is my own not-so-little Easter bunny:


“Who are you calling a bunny?!”

He doesn’t really fit in my lap anymore!

    He may not fit in your lap but that never stopped an enterprising kitty. Happy Easter. Should I mention that we’re having rabbit for Easter dinner? Seems appropriate somehow. We have venison at Christmas, after all!

  2. Flora is SO cute. Hoppy Easter.

    I love bunny girl Flora. Her dress is perfect. Loki is so adorable. It looks like he is just totally relaxing. Happy Easter.

  9. Flora will be very good company for your friend. We all need a ” snuggle bunny”.
    How big is Loki now? My calico likes to get on ,y lap, but she hangs off and I loose feeling in my legs! Our two ginger girls are smaller and fit a little better.
