2 FO's - Spring Beret and Bunny
I finished 2 projects over the weekend. The Spring Beret (also inspired by Slim ) http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-beret

I used Palma by Tahki Yarns (Organic Cotton) for this - It was a very nice cotton to work with.


I came across the pattern for the Knitted Bunny http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knitted-bunny and made it simply because it was so darn cute! I used Moda Dea Dream in Waterlilly for it. He's really soft and fuzzy! I'm not super thrilled with my stuffing job - I should have crammed more into the back legs - they kinda disappear! I also think the ears look a little wonky, but at least DH said that it does look like a bunny - no mistaking it for another critter lol! I'll be giving it to my Mom (her b-day is today) as there is a history with bunnies in our family - kind of silly, but I think she'll like it none-the-less!

It was a fun little knit - I'm always on the search for those smaller, more instant-gratification type projects

Beautiful hat.
Yesterday I downloaded the bunny pattern and figured I could probably knit up one or four for easter for my daughter and the nieces and nephew fairly quick. I can't wait to do it.. they're soo darn cute.
