It Took Me Longer To Post...

Than it Did for me to Knit This!

I made this cute little rabbit for my daughter for Easter.

This is the Rabbit from Natural Knits for Babies & Moms. The yarn is Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton in Nut Brown and Bone (and a teeny amount of RYC Cashsoft in Donkey for the embroidered face). I used US7 bamboo needles (I think that is the size anyway- it has been a while- I used whatever was called for in the pattern). This was a quick knit and even the finishing didn't take that long (about a week start to finish).

I wish the seaming was better, but overall I am pleased with the results (I have since taken a finishing class and I expect future efforts to be more "professionally" finished). This was my first knitted toy and with a 15 month old daughter and a little boy on the way, I expect you'll be seeing more of me around here. More pictures, et cetera are available at my blog.

Very sweet! Love the ears. Would like to use some organic cotton. LYS is promising to get some in for next summer.

So cute! I have some cotton (and that book) bummin' around in my yarn room. Another thing for the future knits list. :-)
