I almost don't believe it myself, but I have finished all of my wips from last week! Prepare for a pretty epic FO Friday, lol. Luckily, there are always tons of cute things to make so I didn't go without a project ... or 3.Silly Duck from Fuzzy Mitten. There is a sort of unofficial knit-along for this pattern this month, so I decided to jump in on it. It's a super cute design and the pattern is half price, so why not? I decided to use a mystery yarn that came in the big bag of yarn I was given. It took me forever to figure out what it was but I liked it so much that I endured the search, lol. Turns out it's Red Heart Value Textured Yarn and I absolutely love it. Of course, it's discontinued and you can't even find it on ebay anymore. Oh well. I'll enjoy the skein I have. This yarn is great for knitted animals - it's just fuzzy enough without making it to where you can't see the stitches. I'm also using some old Caron Sayelle in baby yellow for the feet - another thrift store yarn that I am newly in love with. It may sound strange, but the yarn is actually a little stretchy, so it makes the stitches hold together for a tighter fabric = perfect for animals! And I have this yarn in a bunch of colors - hooray! lol I'm really excited to finish up the duck. I'm about half way through at this point :)
Well-Dressed Bunny ever since I found the pattern a few weeks ago. I blame Watership Down for this desire :) Plus it's coming up on Easter, so what better time to make up a bunny? I put off making it because I really wanted a honey/brown color for the body and I didn't have it in my stash. Thank heavens for an April Fool's Day sale on Joann.com :) I got 2 different yarns in hopes that one would be the right color, and this Patons Canadiana in Flax is exactly what I wanted. I can't wait to make him up! Maybe I'll really get on the ball and make the Bunny Puppet too. Here's hoping!
