a bit of a distractiON>

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...
