Here's the second (of a million, you know) Fuzzy Mitten bunny. I took my time this time and am pleased with the results. This one has been put away for some little child I don't know yet. (Which reminds, me -- yes, Rachel, certainly you can be counted among the children I know! You're eternally youthful!)
I used some Frog Tree merino worsted that I got at Loopy. Must go back for more of this yarn in other colors! It's great for this pattern -- nice and soft. Size 7s were exactly the right size in this case. I faked my way through the sweater using Lamb's Pride. The designer sells a model of this bunny with a worsted-weight sweater pattern included, but I don't have that particular pattern. Stay tuned for the designer's pinafore dress, though! One more shot:
I have some catching up to do! First, it was Christmas in January here at Healthy Tension as Carolyn destashed. Ah, bliss:
I was a fool as Linen Drape sailed off into the sunset and didn't lay in a lifetime's supply...this generous gift certainly eases the pain! And to receive this yarn at this time of year is therapy for winter blahs, that's for sure. Getting out my summer Rowan books from back in L.Drape's heyday and daydreaming was just what I needed.
Ellie was with me when I received this yarn...she insisted on holding this skein all the way home, so I knew the first thing to come from it would be socks for her. This is Opal in the Flamingo colorway -- such fun!
The colors pop a lot more in real life. There was also a skein of Kureyon in the pack, which has already been knit into one-third of a hat and frogged. Thanks so much, Carolyn!!
