Double Pointed Needles and a Tiny Bunny

Following the craft fair on Saturday, now that I have even more yarn in my stash, I have already started planning future cardigans and sweaters.  This in turn has inspired me to get on with the cardi currently occupying the needles, Patsy.  I'm making good progress and may even be wearing it by the end of the week!

When Grace was here at the weekend we had a little distraction with some crafty companionship and worked together on a project. Grace wanted me to show her how to knit in the round with double pointed needles - not my favourite - but it has its uses.  This is what we made.

Grace made one in green as well but I forgot to take a photo before she went home.  Maybe she'll put a picture up on her own blog.  The pattern  is called Tiny Baby Bunnies and it's by Anna Hrachovec at Mochimochi Land.  We used double knitting weight yarn but the pattern uses 4 ply - so they really are tiny.  It's a free pattern, available here.

Grace is now off to buy some double pointed needles so she can make lots of little creatures!
