Giselle is the first bunny I knit using different colors. I wanted a little grey and white bunny to keep for myself to model the outfits I am making (from FuzzyMitten's patterns).

Here she is modeling my latest (and first) piece of clothing as Little Red Riding Hood. 

She is a true diva in every sense of the word. She sees herself as the center of attention. She is haughty and often gets into quibbles with the other softies. She and Maisy have a long-running dislike of each other.

I woke up this morning, bleary-eyed, and shambled into the kitchen to start the coffee maker. What do I find next to the bag of Folgers, but this little cutie!

Alice was knit as a commission for my English teacher. I went to a specialty yarn store in New Orleans to pick up some new wool, and I was very excited to get knitting. I finished her much quicker than my last sheep. I also think I'm getting a little better at faces. I really love using those safety eyes.

Alice is calm and docile - until she gets her coffee that is! She bounces off the walls!

I love knitting from patterns. There's something special about seeing the picture on the page and making it come to life in a way that's unique and interesting. I'd love to start making and designing my own patterns, but for now, I use patterns from the following people.

~Fuzzy Mitten: The pattern I bought from her is the pattern that reignited my love for knitting. She knits adorable little toys and the cutest little softies. I really want to try my hand at knitting clothes for my bunnies from her Clothing Bundle patterns. She even offers a free pattern for people who just want to try it out.

Her blog is here: http://blog.fuzzymitten.com/

~Fiber Trends: This is where I bought the patterns for the hedgehog, sheep, and the sitting rabbit. They have really easy to read instructions and have a great guide for first-time felters.

Their website is here: http://www.fibertrends.com/

~BitterSweet: I haven't used her patterns yet, but once I finish my current projects, I want to make some knitted food. They are absolutely adorable and all of her patterns are free.
