With Spring in Mind

3 Comments

January has been so busy there hasn’t been much time for blogging. Now that I’ve given myself a day off ( oh I’m such and enlightened employer!) I’ll share a few items I’ve been working on. With Easter being early this year thought I would stock up on some more rabbits as I had to say goodbye to most of them before Christmas.

Rabbits

The body of these rabbits are based on the Debi Birken Design Bunty Bunny. Love this pattern, it’s quick and easy and you are guaranteed a cute rabbit at the end. Once you have made a few it’s easy to modify and make a variety of clothes for them.

I love the way they all have their own special character. I prefer to work on each one from start to finish rather then knitting 4 heads, 8 ears etc. that way you feel each one is unique.

I did promise to start knitting more baby clothes so finished this traditional matinee set.

It is knitted in DK in a pretty peppermint green with white edging. It has a pretty lacy skirt and sleeves with a stocking stitch bodice.

It is from an old vintage pattern I have had in my collection for years. To complete the outfit there is a bodice and a pair of cute Mary Jane Shoes.

I think the ribbon roses on the shoes and bonnet give the set such a pretty look.

Must find something to do now with the rest of my day off which doesn’t include needles and yarn!!!
