FO Entrechat 2

Since I last posted I’ve been to the wonderful town of Loule, swum, eaten, frolicked in the sea, injured my knee, gained crutches and had enforced knitting time yesterday. Consequently I’ve finished granddaughter Emily’s Christmas present in record time! 

What I was contemplating yesterday morning. Everyone else had gone dolphin watching. I was very happy! 

Such pretty detailing on this pattern! 

And ta-dah!

FO: Little Cotton Rabbit 2

My boss, who is absolutely lovely, has a big birthday coming up. In the office when we were discussing celebrating it, there was only one theme we could possibly have for her – rabbits! And that’s because she has 26 of them! Now I love my rabbits but 26 is dedication… Lots of us in the office are crafty and we decided to create rabbits if we could. One colleague has done the most incredible pencil drawing, another has made a fabric scarf. And I’ve knitted her a rabbit with a dress! 

This is a really lovely pattern to make with no one piece of knitting being too long or too hard.
