I've been a busy bee!
I'm calling her "Butterscotch" and she is the first of two little yellow bunnies I'm knitting up for my favorite babes.
I used a tiny bit of lamb's pride worsted (left over from Isaac's 8 bit hat) and Jess Hutch's bunny pattern. This little sweetie is one fast knit (it took me just over 2 hours or 2 episodes of the new Dr. Who depending on how you tell time). I swear it hardly made a dent in the leftover yarn. So much for stash busting!
I also finished my first purse for this month's Sew, I knit! along.
I used the jordy bag tutorial from craftster and some vintage fabric from my stash. It's a great tutorial for anyone interested in an easy spring bag.
Thanks for all the comments on my stash & my elfines! I'm on a serious mission to stash bust so hopefully I will *magically* wave my needles & turn some of that stash into FO's! Or at least become a faster knitter!
Question: Did you just sew on his eyes with black yarn?
the bag turned out great too- how is the sewing coming along overall? do you feel like you are learning a lot in a short time?
That bunny pattern's been on my to-do scroll for ages, but he's still a way off down the list. (sigh)
Love the vibrant colors and patterns on your bag, too. Tres chic!
