Not something I do often...



After I'd posted little rabbit to Karen yesterday  I found myself with my knitting needles in my hands and just had to make another to match.  She is so cute but I think I will have to hide her on our tree before a little someone sees it and claims it for her own  :-) They knit up really quickly but knitting the limbs is a little fiddly because they are knit in the round on double ended needles and with only 4 stitches.  I like the way they take on their own character....the one ear on this one didn't want to stand up like the other one.

Couldn't you use i-cord?

Oh Annie, your little knitted friends are so cute - my jaw dropped though at the idea of knitting just 4 stitches in the round!. Actually I'm sure my mum had a sort of "pair" of needles that was like 2 short needles joined together with a piece of "tube" for want of a better word

For once I am so glad I didn't win a giveaway!! I looked at the Little Cotton Rabbits page and decided to give making a bear a go - have done one, finishing another and will probably have a whole family by the end of the weekend - each one is an improvement on the last!!

No DP needles here so just knitting tiny strips & then sewing them up - seems to work ok.

Awww... how sweet. They would make great ornaments... put a little scarf on or a sprig of greenery... a bell perhaps...

I like that one ear is different... makes it cute....

I have been looking at all your recent knitting and hardly know which is the cutest!! Baby Jesus is amazing - it was the slightly spiky looking hair that made me smile, and the teddies and rabbits are so sweet. xx
