Well, it seems you all love the pink bunnies as much as I did! They are settling in well; I was worried about the looks they were giving me as I made the hot cross buns until I realised that on the opposite page (in Nigella's Feast) there is a recipe for an Easter rabbit curry. Whoops.
Anyway, now I know that Jennie has received her parcel I can show you what I made for her:
I know some of you have already seen this little fluffball over at Jennie's blog, but I wanted to show him here, partly because I was very pleased with him - he's the first non-square thing I have ever crocheted! - and second because some of you asked about the pattern. He is the fluffy bunny from PlanetJune and he is not only very straightforward to make, the fluffy wool is quite forgiving of mistakes once you get used to not being able to see all your stitches very clearly! I am now bitten by the amigurumi bug and am designing my own simple bunny - watch this space.
I also made a covered notebook, with the rest of the spring fabric left over from the coffee cosies last week.
This is a pattern I made up a couple of weeks ago and I've completed quite a few of them. I always liked the Pink Chalk Studio notetaker but it was a bit more than I really needed and besides, I like a hard covered book rather than a notebook so I came up with this - it has a pen holder and pockets inside but doesn't end up much bigger than the notebook itself. I even used interfacing and a magnetic closure - I feel so grown up!
