FO: Lacy Bonnet
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)

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!!
