Knitted bunny - The Sequel

Here is the first rabbit, which I made from Jo so & sew's pattern.
I say 'the first rabbit', because there will be many more between now and Easter.
Rabbits have this strange way of multiplying ...

It was a joy to make this little guy. It couldn't be easier with just a simple square.

I experimented with stitching on a face and decided for a simple one - the eyes are two small double stitches, the mouth a little upside-down V in a single thread.
The tail is made from a little square in Snowflake, pulled together along the edges and filled with a small amount of stuffing.

Knitted bunny

This very simple and delightful bunny is made from an easy to knit square in garter stitch. How much easier could it be?
Being made from one piece it is suitable for small children too.

This will be my Easter project.

The pattern is available free here, and the Ravelry page can be found here.
Come and join the Easter fun!

Menstrual pads

I finally got round to trying to make these menstrual pads.
I made the smallest size, which really functions as a panty liner. Comfortable to wear and stays in place!

The pattern is available free from iBirk Knit Designs.

The Women's Environmental Network has much to say about the environmental impact of sanitary protection on the environment. Follow the link and scroll down to the pdf "Seeing Red: sanitary protection and the environment" in the Health section.

Crocheted hearts

This is my last Valentines project. I promise to move on to more sensible things, which don't include hearts! :)

I usually prefer knitting to crocheting, but I couldn't resist these lovely crocheted hearts.

The pattern is from K and J Dolls Blog and is available for free.
More fun patterns are available of Ravelry.

Fingerless gloves - for Valentines

I designed these fingerless gloves myself. After some attempts and more unraveling I decided to use gussets for the thumbs.

I find gussets made the gloves more comfortable to wear and didn't pull the heart pattern out of shape.

As and when I get round to writing up the pattern, it will appear for sale on Ravelry.
