What's going on at Sunflower Designs?
A little bit of this...
And a whole lotta this other thing...
I think this is officially a butt-load of charts.
It took all day, but Morocco's pattern is in the bag
Or the laptop, as the case may be...
So now the race is on.
Can Susan stay ahead of test knitter Cheryl? Who will finish first?
(I know, the suspense is killing you!)
Of course I have a head start...
So in the interest of fairness, I put Moroccan Days aside in favor of another design project for Woolen Rabbit.
A while back I told Kim I wanted to design some rabbit socks for her.
She sent me some of her new fiber in a lovely purple, but I decided the lettuce shades of a skein I already had in stash were just perfect for what I had in mind.
That's Woolen Rabbit sock yarn in Rosemary & Thyme
After many false starts, I came up with these:
See the bunny?
There, amidst the garden rows?
How about now?
I'm calling the pattern Mr. McGregor, after the farmer of Peter Rabbit fame: The finished sock will feature a vertical lace pattern and more bunny ears on the leg. I think I will top it off at the cuff with a little curly endive ruffle.
But I just couldn't resist the thought of Peter hiding in the cabbages on the foot of one sock...
As to Morocco, I got several more repeats in on the body over the weekend, but there was one casualty:
WHOOPS! Gonna have to fix that. No idea where I snagged it.
Better get back to work; I think Cheryl's rounding the first turn...
