Here is one of my latest finished objects. I got the pattern for signing up for a knitting related email mailing list. They were so cute that I could not resist. Evan and Harry both were fascinated by my knitting once I told them that I was making a bunny. Evan kept asking where the bunny's eyes were. I did make some mistakes in the pattern, the most notable being that I put the head where the bum should be. For the bunny that did not matter all that much, but had I been making a bear or a cat it would have made a huge difference. The ears are formed out of the flatter bottom (what should have been the top) in those versions. I am also not thrilled with the light gray color, but I used what I had on hand.
Oh and for a little bit of follow up on my vow to not set foot into a craft store for three months. Well I did not even make it a month. Christmas gifts kind of blew that out of the water and once I started up again there was no going back. I have not been too bad but I have added a bit to my yarn stash. In fact I need to make a yarn run to get some more gray for the sweater I am making for Harry. It was very badly planned yarn wise and I am running out. I am planning on getting some brown so that I can make a nicer looking bunny. If you are nice to me I may even make a few to give away. I have a huge bag of filling that I want to use up before we move and this would be a fun way to do it.
