26th October 2010
Not so long ago a friend of mine asked if I would knit her baby son a bunny for Christmas . I wanted to make something a bit different from my normal bunnies and knew the exact pattern I wanted to use.
Now I've never used this pattern before and for once I actually went out and bought the recommended yarn ,which is something I never do. It was also advised that I use 4mm needles , nah way to big, so I dropped a size .
As I was making this bunny something just didn't feel right and after I made the head I realised that the yarn was just way too dark, you can't even see his facial features and also the knitting was far too ' holey'.
The pattern itself is okay but it's not a favourite . I will probably make this bunny again but with a different yarn and I'll definately drop another needle size.
He's now been christened Benny and is sitting getting told a story off Gabe .
As for the bunny for my friend , surprisingly enough I do have more bunny patterns !!
