Diversionary knitting

I was knitting along on the Haiku baby sweater Saturday evening, working on the second sleeve. As the yarn was dwindling, I remembered the last hank I purchased had never been wound...and although I do have a Swift and ball winder, I was too lazy to dig them out and use them.

So, what to do? Well, after seeing this little cutie crafted by Abby, I just had to stop and make one. I already had the pattern, having made the "Mama" in white. So I cast on and came up with this little guy!




Say hello to baby bunny! A cute little pocket pal, eh? Just palm size, about seven inches tall, easy to carry about. This may be my new desktop companion. Well, at least until I make another one!

The bunny is cute! Did you knit it up with Lamb's Pride?

not that i needed to add another pattern to my 'to knit' list, but i went straight to the site and bought the bunny pattern. it was too adorable to pass up, and with easter coming it is perfect!

I'm working on one of Kate's bunnies. I was wondering what yarn you used for you white one?

Sandy, the white bunny was knit with Berrocco "Plush," much fuzzier than the Lamb's Pride I used for the baby brown bunny.
