Here is my most recent FO. It's called "Lacy Bonnet" and is from "knitting for two."

I used Filatura di Crosa 501 in "pretty in pink" (washable merino wool on sale at elann.com)

Model: Ashley. My talented mom made this bunny rabbit for me years and years ago, including the outfit. She's propped up against my iron, as she's a floppy bunny.

Things I learned in the making of this:

1) how to make lace (intentional patterns of holes in knitting) :woohoo:

2) how to pick up and knit stitches (I don't know why that used to scare me) :)

3) trying to do an "M1" when you have knitted tightly is a real @#$%^&*$#@!

4) knitting i-cord can get tedious


Thanks for looking!

Oh, and thank you Candace for your advice in the seaming and finishing stages:muah:!!

That is so cute! You did a great job. Your little bunny model made me laugh. She looks like she feels a bit humiliated, but I don't know why she should feel that way. The bonnet goes very nicely with her dress.
