the blanket was getting to me and i needed a bit of a distraction. something fun, quick and... for j. i haven't knit much for him, so i thought a stuffed animal would be the perfect thing. after looking at various bear designs, i came across this by ysolda. a bunny. i loved it immediaely and ran down to my lys to my to find some suitable yarn.
pattern: stuffies by ysolda
yarn: berroco ultra alpaca, colour 6225
needles: us 8 (5.0mm) clover bamboo
the pattern calls for felting the features with a felting needle, which unfortunately i do not own. so.... i embroidered the eyes (photo not shown), but i'm not pleased with the results so i may use buttons instead.
now back to the old ball and chain...
