View Full Version : FO; bunny and WIP: poppins scarf

04-11-2006, 06:20 PM
Here is the bunny I made yesterday, from this pattern (http://www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/bunny.shtm) I used ElCheapo brand squeaky acrylic yarn, and red heart pink furry stuff for the ears and tail. On the pattern, I did the alternate tail with the icord, and I think it turned out very cute. My picture of the tail is H U G E, and I can't rezise it without losing picture quality so you'll just have to take my word for it.

The second pictures are of my mary poppins-ish scarf. The yarn is from Blue Heron (http://www.blueheronyarns.com)yarns, and it's like string! In the pick you can see how big the ball is... it;'s over 500 yards! The lace pattern (http://www.canknit.com/free/kos.html) was suggested by rebecca ( :heart: ) , but there are several other similar pattern links on this thread (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11688) --thank you to everyone who offered!!!! I'm knitting it on size 15s!

It's hard to see the pattern because it's only 3 inches high, and because it's not blocked, but I *really* like how it's turning out. Once it's finished i'll try to get a better picture of the yarn.. it's So pretty, all red and ornage and gold and purple and yellow. There is a picture of the yarn on this page (http://www.blueheronyarns.com/yarns/cc3.html) It's the top one called TULIP, but it doesn't show the gold and yellow in the swatch. It's a beaded rayon yarn, AND it's from Easton, Maryland, so you people who live in that area (cate, ekg!) GO CHECK THEM OUT. I think all of their yarns are gorgeous!!!! Ironcially, I found it at chix with sticks when I was there with KK over the weekend. They have retailers all over the US, but you can also buy it from this site (http://www.seaportyarn.com/store2/glvirtualtones/index.php) (click on "blue heron" and then the rayon ricrack link to see my yarn) But the prices at chix are a little better.

Anyway, NOW pictures.

I have a 17 inch monitor... so they're not stretching out my screen.... :oops:

Momwolf, I thinnk I overstuffed the bunny: the seams are really tight, and my stitches are spread out. I think that's why it stands up. KKs bunnies are softer.

I am desperate for poppins to be done! But I am using it as my mindless knitting relief project. After 200 tows of stockinette I'll need something like that!

That bunny is too cute--it needed to be seen all at once, so I took pity on your resizing problems. I hope you don't mind. ;)

And why won't my computer do COLORS AND BIG FONT DARN IT

I just tried to do a pink message with my bunny picture and it wouldn't take...... I'm jexed.


I have to make some bunnies. Did you see my bunny under Happy Easter?

04-19-2006, 01:14 PM

did that work ?

Is pink available?

well i can't do it either


04-19-2006, 06:48 PM
I got pink!!! I didn't get Hilde's link to the yarn though. :( Cute bunny {killer or otherwise}, and that lace looks just difficult enough to keep your mind from turning to mush on endless stockinette.

That bunny is so cute! I love the yarn you are using for the scarf! :thumbsup:
