My current work in progress:

Bunny Fever

The other day I took time out from shawl knitting because I felt the need to knit another bunny. Meet Inga:



She is Dotty‘s new best friend! She is knit from Cascade 220 and a variety of Loopy Cakes. Like Dotty, she is knit from Julie Williams’ excellent pattern Bunny girl in a dotty dress.

I can foresee knitting little matching dresses for the bunny girls for different holidays and seasons!

I am also working along on my  Stay Awhile shawl. I am past the halfway point:


I actually have negative progress. I was blithely knitting along and didn’t realize I had knit way past the halfway point of the amount of yarn I had, so had to rip back a couple of inches. Very painful. 😉 But I don’t want to run out before the end!

Loki is helping me today by lying in my lap, demanding attention.


I am happy to comply!

    What a beautiful photo of Loki. My kitty, Duchess, posed the same way yesterday. I just can’t believe how trusting they can be. Also, I follow Julie’s blog and love those bunnies. I have never been fortunate enough to purchase one and I do not know how to “double knit”. You do an excellent job, Wendy. I just marvel at everything you knit! You certainly are a “Master Knitter”.

    Sorry for your rip out. I find it very frustrating when I have to do it. As for Loki, she has too much fluff – can’t see her face. 🙂 It looks like she is playing the “I’m ignoring you” game. Sparky loved to play that game with me and as soon as I touched her tummy or a foot, she loved to nail me with a playful nibble. Love your bunnies – bookmarked the pattern for future reference. Later, M

  3. Your bunny is adorable Wendy. You so inspire me. I have to make one someday soon. So sorry you had to rip out; not fun I know. Loki looks so fluffy and sweet.

  4. Your bunny is very cute! I really like projects like that, I get easily bored and it is hard for me to finish a sweater. I can’t wait to see Inga’s wardrobe. Love Loki as always!

  5. Yeah, obliviously knitting away, and past the point where you have to….take some other action.

    Might be fun to flip the colors between the ground and the dots for another round of dresses, if you’ve got the yarn to do it.

  6. Oh, Inga is so cute!

    I like your description of blithely knitting away. I’ve been guilty of that myself. Just having too much fun, right?

    I think Loki is the first FO of the year – if FO stands for Fluffy Object.
