Folksy Friday - through the rabbit hole

One of my dearest friends has recently had a little baby boy, who is just scrumptious.  I wanted to make him a keepsake and I'd seen a lovely pattern for a linen bunny in Sew Hip magazine.  Anyway I started making it earlier this week and don't know whether it's me or the pattern, but something is amiss.  So instead I'm crocheting him a beautiful blue bunny from the softest merino wool.  I love the old fashion feel of knitted and crocheted toys, there's something quite special about them.

I haven't crocheted for about 25 years, but with the aid of this fab book which I got for my birthday I'm making great progress.  I should have it finished in no time!  However, I'm not really one for following patterns to the letter, I like to ad lib a bit so I'm not telling anyone it's meant to be a bunny yet, we'll see what it most resembles when it's finished!!

So my Folksy Friday this week has a twitch of the nose, a hop and a cotton tail to it. As always if you like what you see click on the pic to be magically transported through the rabbit hole to and go shop!  Happy Friday everyone, hope you all have a fab weekend. Ursula ♥
