multiplying like rabbits.

I promised a friend some knitted rabbits for her comic relief bake sale.
 

Knitting on the train and when you are chatting means sometimes you don't quite pay attention to the pattern, and there was quite a lot of variation. The blue bunny on the right was the most wonky and affectionately referred to as a mole rat by certain family members...........

  
Next I tried a different pattern, but this bunny clearly hadn't been eating enough carrot cake, as she was rather anorexic.......
 
 
At this point I admitted defeat and headed for my sewing machine.
 

 
Much better.
 
 
This bunny was part of a "guess my name game", she was called Buttons.


The rest of the bunnies were sold for Comic Relief.

 
When I got home the first thing I was asked was "did you sell any bunnies?" and when I said they were all sold 
 
 "What??? Even the mole rat?"

  4. Flipadoodle missus. Those needle-and-thread buns are marvellous. Put some into your etsy shop at once. Knitty buns are also magnificent but in a different way. They have big personalities and I think that a couple may have 'issues' which need to be attended to by the bunnypsychologist. Did mole rat get sold? If not, we would like to adopt him here at BeanTowers...

  6. I love them all! Most impressed you made so many in a short space of time! That's dedication. I suffer from second sock syndrome on anything after the first one, nevermind the socks! :-)
