I fell in love with the cute bunny I spotted in Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine, Fall/Winter 2009 way back when it came out. By July 2010 my friend was expecting her second child and although she didn’t know if it would be a boy or a girl, I gambled on the first. The bunny would be blue.
It knitted really quickly, but the essembly took a very long time. The stuffing was stored away in the loft and we kept forgetting to bring it down. Then came the sewing together and I must admit that I was rather slow with that one too.
Finally in August 2011 my friend and her family, including her four month old boy came to visit me here in the UK. Time to finish the bunny… E voila! Isn’t he cute? Just like the baby that is now pulling his ears. Good thing I triple stitched it!
