Carat with and without Carrot!

Don't you want to reach out and give him a hug?

He's an amigurumi bunny that I designed just for the spring :D His pattern includes the carrot - I actually have lots and lots of carrots created for this bunny as they actually do double duty as cat toys.

I stuffed some with catnip, as they are about the same size as the catnip mice I can get at the petshop - I think my cats love em with and without catnip, and they especially like the curly carrot tops. LOL.

For a while, I was cranking out these little guys and the house started looking like the set from Wallace & Grommit's Curse of the Wererabbit!

A bun for a baby :)

Desperate for a quick knitted gift, I did up this bunny for a friend's baby.

From the Heartstrings Bunny Pattern and a swatch knit from Lion Brand Homespun, this little bun was born. Unfortunately he was a bit difficult to photograph indoors, so the front on shot is a little dark.

I love how his little ears curl around. I think he'll become a regular in the repertoire as he's quick to churn out and is baby-safe too :) Very important considering the number of baby gifts I need to get together!

Of course, I couldn't leave you without a tail shot :)

I made his tail with some home-made pompom templates. Gotta love a nice fluffy tail :D

Bunny Sweater

I made this sweater last fall for my niece, so it's not technically easter (or pagan bunny worship day as I prefer to call it). This sweater is a combination of a baby cardigan pattern from knitty and some bunnies that I took from another pattern. I added french knot tails to the bunnies.

I'm excited about bunny themed knitting, so I will come up with some other bunnies to add!
