This past year was Annette's first Christmas and I really wanted to knit her a present. I was originally thinking something she could wear, or maybe a stocking (but then I'd have to knit them for my husband and me and I wasn't sure I had that much stick-with-it ;)). Then I saw this stuffed bunny pattern by Julie Williams and about died from the cuteness. Polka-dot dress, Mary-Jane shoes, and striped tights. Love the details! Must. Knit. NOW! :)
I dug through my stash and found just enough yarn in the right yarn weights and colors and got knitting. (Side note: After knitting it, I was amazed at how little yarn it used!) It took me a few weeks to finish it, but I was also designing/knitting the Baby Nordik Hat while I knit this, so I can't say for sure how many knitting hours that was. The knitting itself was pretty easy, but all of the seaming and stuffing made it pretty fiddly (which the designer herself warns about). All of the careful stuffing and the little details that made it fiddly (Mary-Janes, stripes, etc.), though, are what made it turn out so cute, so it's hard to complain. I LOVE the way it turned out (and so does Annette :)), but I think it'll be a while before I knit another one. Probably once it falls apart due to my teething baby. ;)
