Knitting a Bunny

I can't help it. I love to knit these little toys. And it's something to do in the evenings since I'm finding it too hard to sew anymore then. I think it's the light, which doesn't seem to be as much of an issue when knitting.

So, let's see... the count is 1 owl, 1 reversible cat/mouse, 2 balls (one still intact, the other... not so much... puppies have sharp teeth), and, introducing:

He's (well, I think it's a he) already a little dirty, as a couple of random body parts were snatched by my dog before attachment. That's life as a bunny, I suppose. Always on the lookout for the enemy dog.

Another critter is already in the works, and shouldn't take as long as Mr. Bunny who turned out bigger than I expected. Yes, the measurements are in the pattern, but you know, my perception of a flat measurement into a 3D animal is obviously a bit skewed.

Here's the whole family together:

It's probably about time I started giving them names, don't you think? If you have any suggestions, feel free to give them to me.

Oh, p.s. these are all from the creative mind of Susan B. Anderson.


  1. Cute! :) I'm really going to have to give knitting cute soft toys a go. My little sisters would love to be given such cute little cuddly things!

  2. Cute family! I don't like to sew at night either, mostly because I'm tired and not at my best game. I'm knitting frilly scarves.

  3. The bunny ist the cutest of all! I am collecting bunnies and I have more than 150 from all over the world. This is a great idea to make one by myself!
    Thanks for this post!


  4. I kept reading the designer's name as Susan B. Anthony, and thought to myself, wow, between abolition and knitting, how'd she do it all? haha...never mind ;)

    It's a very cute bunny!!!
