I had a request to make a typical Canadian animal with a red and white dress.
I couldn't find a pattern that pleased me so I ended up altering the bunny pattern (from Little Cotton Rabbits) into a beaver, with small ears and added some big teeth. I embroidered a maple leaf on the front of the dress.
It turned out pretty nice so I'm pleased.
And so was the customer!
Cute, cute, cute!
These mini bunnies and bears are a new pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits. Perfect for babies, all in one piece, no buttons. Only about 14cm high (knitting on 2.5mm needle). Had a great time using up all kinds of leftover yarn.
After a nice (unexpected) trip to Holland to see family and friends I'm back home again and ready for some new projects.
Bought some beautiful Unicat yarn at my favourite store in Arnemuiden to make shawls for my girls.
Too bad I was held back by the limited amount of suitcase space otherwise I could have brought back a lot more. This has to do for now. Can't wait to start on it.
Also need to restock my stuffed animal display, so that means back to work in a hurry!
Update September 20, 2019
One shawl done (for myself, the girls can't decide yet which pattern to use).
Never thought that Easter Bunny post would be so successful!
I have been knitting overtime lately, I did more than 30 bunnies and also sold some extra dresses and cardigans.
I'm going to take a little knitting break now and I'll be ready to start on some different stuff in a couple of weeks!
