Go ahead and laugh...everyone who has seen my little crocheted creation already has! This was my first attempt at crocheting where I actually followed a pattern. Sort of. I tried. I did my best but watching TV while eating popcorn and trying to count stitches didn't produce the best results - maybe I need turn off the TV? Sure as heck can't give up popcorn!
This is what I was going for...these adorable little critters are made by BlaBla Kids, check them out, amazing things for kids! BlaBla knit animals are all hand made in Peru and super soft and squishy. All of them were given to me by my dear friend Joyce, 9 years ago when our grandson Max was born and Max and Elsa love playing with them when they come to Gramma's house. I was hoping to make a soft and squishy bunny for Max and Elsa for Easter, alas, I'm not Peruvian...I'm sure that's the reason why my bunny doesn't look the same, no?
When I finished all the parts, I stuffed them...and they grew and grew and grew! My bunny was crocheted with very soft yarn and it stretched and stretched and stretched! So it's a bit out of proportion!
This is what I learned...I realized I'm a "one and done" kind of gal...so no more bunnies for me! I don't like making multiples of anything...b o r i n g. And I also realized that crocheting, while fun, is not mind-less...and if I'm going to be sitting watching TV, which is mind-less, I need something equally as mind-less to do...so I guess I'll just stick with eating popcorn.
Thanks anyway Emily and Happy Easter!
