Woollie Hats - Chinese Year of the Rabbit

I made a couple of hats for friend's kids this week using a pattern I found on Ravelry - I adapted it somewhat but the motif remains the same....rabbits....it's spring....it'll be Easter soon.....rabbits.....it's the Year of the Rabbit.....rabbits.....


I'm still not sure I've quite mastered stranded knitting - it's still tighter than the plain garter stitch, but at least they are a little stretchier than the first one I made.

And since I haven't been up to much else of late here's a few shots that I took over the past few months....

Those little hats are SOOOO cute Di -- someone is really going to love them.

What are those really tall grid like things in the backgrouns of your picture from home?

And those snowmen are cute as can be!

Utterly cool hats!

I'll second the question about those grid structures... thought they might be building cranes/hoists, but am uncertain. In any case, it's a beautiful picture!

They're oil rigs/platforms. There's an oil rig repair place in the harbour so we frequently have them in port - lit up at night they are even more impressive!
