Another Woobie
I made the puppy woobie, pattern by Kris Carlson, last year for a co-worker's baby boy. This year, I made the Bunny Woobie for the same co-worker's baby girl. Both times, I had a hard time preventing the stitches from twisting when joining in the round. This time, I placed the needles on a pillow with the provisional cast-on stitches on the inside of the circle before joining. That seemed to help.

That's really sweet. Thanks for the tip on not twisting when joining in the round. I had no problem for a long time, now I seem to twist them every time.

What an adorable bunny! That'll be a much loved favorite, I'm sure. You knit this so well and you're tip about laying out the knitting on a flat surface to avoid the mobius twist is a good one.
