A Pair of Hares.

If you are like me you are probably shocked that Easter has somehow snuck up on you, that it is in TWO WEEKS. I’m pretty sure that it was January last week, so how did this happen??

Lucky for you, we’re giving you a heads up! If you knit and like giving one-of-a-kind gifts, then our “Claire the Hare” PDF knitting pattern is right up your alley. It’s available on our website, on Ravelry, and on Etsy (all of these links can be found to the right of this post).

If knitting isn’t your thing and you still love giving one-of-a-kind gifts, then these are for you! I have created a few rabbits using my pattern and they are available for purchase!

Instead of wearing the knitted overall dress, they are dressed in a couple of short-and-shirt outfits I created specifically for them. These took some time to make, especially sewing these tiny little shorts! But I just love the way they turned out.

The shirt was sewn using a high-quality Liberty of London cotton. She was hand knitted from 100% wool and has a wool embroidered face.

This second little rabbit was also hand knitted from 100% wool, with a wool embroidered face.

Side-bar: Sewing

While I’m putting the finishing touches on a few more knitted goods and waiting for a tear-less, teething model, I’ve decided to go a little off-topic.  So, I sew… a little.  I may eventually get ambitious and decide to add some sewn-on details to my knitted items.  Who knows, maybe I’ll just use my skills to sew a lining in a cabled purse or something. Anyways, after dealing with two broken sewing machines this last week, I’ve finished six throw pillows, a roman shade, and have made almost all of the linens in my daughter’s nursery (including the curtains).  After making all of the pillows, I think that zippers can just go kick rocks.  All in all, everything turned out, but for now I think I’ll stick to my knitting! I was so excited about making this sweet little nursery set, I’d though I’d share.
