After knitting on the new socks for an evening, I couldn't resist the inspiration to start yet another project. This one was another stashbuster (but aren't they all, this year?) the perfect size project to use up a couple of balls of lovely pink Cashmerino Aran that I had sitting around.
I don't know if it's because of all the bunnies I've seen, recently, but I suddenly had an impulse to make Sophie -- an adorable little bunny pattern from the inimitable Ysolda. It was pretty easy to make, knit in the round on double points. There was very little finishing because the parts were all built off of one another, rather than separately and sewn together. I used a crochet hook to pick up the stitches, which made things a lot easier than trying to do it with a knitting needle. There were a couple of difficult starts (like the first few rounds of the ears and arms) but other than that it was so simple and turned out so cute!
Sophie is pretty relaxed -- she mostly just chills out on the sofa and watches TV. One thing she's pretty excited about: how the final season of Lost is turning out. She is full of theories about the show, though she has so far kept silent about them.
Happy Earth Day
