Great Weather Today~Knitting a Bunny


I found a little park nestled in a residential neighborhood this morning. I worked on knitting a bunny, my art journal, and my reading goals. I had the park all to myself except for a group of people playing baseball with little children on the far side of the park. They sure get them into sports early these days. Uniforms and all.

I started the bunny yesterday in a yarn called "Camel". I knew I wouldn't have enough to do the whole bunny, so today I switched to a fuzzy ombre yarn in shades of pink and gray so the bunny will look like it's wearing pants. I left little openings in the torso to add the arms later. I think I'll sew the legs on seperately so I can make the bunny sitting down.

I came home and my lazy cat was still in the middle of my bed. I don't think he'd moved an inch the whole time I was gone. The other cat greeted me at the door and is trying to help me type this post now. I'm getting a headache so no more knitting until it goes away.

I think the problem may be that you are using cotton, and cotton tends to droop. Until you get the hang of it, try 2 strands of worsted weight acrylic, or one strand of bulky yarn, or even 3 strands of cotton. Keep experimenting until you find a combination that works. Also, the KK makes an openwork type of knitting. It won't have the tightness of knitting on conventional needles. Have you looked at my Knifty Knitter blog? It might have photos that help. Let me know how it goes.
