Hip Hop!

This little bunny buddy was knitted for a fellow MOPS mom's daughter. The little girl is only just over a year old and she pulled a hot cup of tea onto herself. Her arm and torso were burnt. She spent a day at the burn unit at Devos but was lucky enough to come home the next day. Thankfully she is doing very well. The kids and I wanted to send her a little something to help get her through the treatments. This bunny seemed the perfect idea. Of course my kiddies want their own now. Henry's is finished and looks similar to this one but Irene demands that hers be pink. Oh well...more knitting on the pile. I have to finish those darn baby booties. I have less than three weeks! They have just been kicking my butt. I had to completely rip back the one I had started.
The good news is that I have been invited to join a knitting group that meets on Tuesday. Tomorrow will be my first time going. The kids get to come with me so I don't have to worry about finding child care.

The bunny is made with Lion Brand Homespun yarn in waterfall (i think). I have had at least 5 skeins of this yarn for over 10 years. The past few weeks have been short of funds so when I needed yarn I thought I was going to be out of luck, until I remembered I had this stuffed in a bin. I am also making a child size blanket with it. Lion Brand had a simple pattern for homespun yarn at their website. I've been enjoying the yarn and finally using it. It is so soft and such a pretty mix of color. I'll post more pictures of my projects soon!
