Knitting - Meet Rosy Rabbit
If you follow WIP Wednesday then you will have seen this rabbit in pieces. All pattern/yarn details are on the WIP link.
I actually thought when I looked at the photo later that it looked like a dissection class!!
Anyway she is now finished. I am never really happy with the features, I can never get the mouth to look like the picture. Wasn't sure if she looked a bit like Hitler!? The eyes and nose are sticky backed velcro dots which saves a lot of agonising. I decided against the fairisle pattern on the dress as it was getting lost (you can see what I mean on the bottom) in the multi coloured yarn, and it actually looks pretty enough without it.
I had best get cleared up and get on with some housework and jobs. Going out later to enjoy one of my Christmas presents - dinner and the theatre with Rachel, we are off to see Black Coffee at the Arts Theatre in Cambridge.
Have a great weekend. I will be casting on another white cardigan, I pulled out the wrap over one from last week as wasn't keen on how it was knitting up. Thats the great thing about knitting the yarn is never wasted.
