Bunnies wouldn't be bunnies without their fluffy white tails:
Pauline's dress was so much fun to make. I knitted her dress without a pattern, making up the shape as I went along. I crocheted some tiny flowers for embellishment:
I had such a fun time making these little knitted bunnies. When I was in London last fall I picked up this book from Hatchards bookship in Piccadilly. It's filled with these bunnies and wonderful Easter eggs you can knit.
I bought one skein of Dale of Norway yarn for Peter but I used some leftover DK weight yarn for Pauline and it worked great. Their ears are lined with pink, fuzzy angora wool and their tales are white angora. Who knows, maybe they will make another apperance next year dressed in a different outfit!
On another note, yesterday my mailman delivered my colorful yarn for the stripey blanket I am going to make.
I received 17 100 gram skeins at less than $2.50 each. And, the shipping from the UK to California was just over $6.00! I can't believe the bargain I found.
For those of you in the UK, I wish you a Happy Mother's Day. Please try to stop by Handmade Harbour
where you will find lots of creative ideas.
My best to each of you until next time,
