May brings another finished object… err, make that a pair of finished objects! I caught the obsession with knitting bunnies earlier last month and obsessively knit I did! Susan Anderson’s patterns are wonderfully written – and her method of knitting a bunny is genius.
My mods: Due to leftover yarn amounts, the boy bunny has a slightly shorter shirt because I wanted him to have long sleeves. This worked well because the girl bunny appears to have a slightly longer “frock” however, I only had enough yarn for her to have “short sleeves” which I think worked just fine. I also made much larger tails for each bunny. An aspect I loved (as did Genevieve!!) – Big pompoms FTW!
The bunnies are perfect for using up odds and ends of yarn. The directions are super clear and not at all fiddly! My advice… make some bunnies! SOON!
Vacation knitting has consisted of a sock. I have not even picked up Marsa Alam – although I brought it along.
Vacation reading has also been a bit in the slow lane. I managed to finish A Ladder to the Sky before we left. I am at the point where I want to read all the John Boyne novels available. Yes, they are that good. Better, even! Like The Heart’s Invisible Furries this was a book that I could not stop listening to. Boyne somehow makes me want to listen despite the fact that my dislike for the main character (Maurice Swift) is off the charts. And, the ending… perfect, brilliant, and so fitting. 5-stars and if you have read no John Boyne I highly recommend him!
That is all I have for this week, and as always – if you wrote a post to share, please leave your link below!
