I made these little toys for my kids months ago (before I started this blog)... but since I haven't posted in a while I thought I'd share them with you. The basic pattern is called the Anything Animal. You can find the pattern HERE. To make the rabbit I just followed the basic pattern. For Olivia the pig I added a nose adapted from a from THIS finger puppet pattern. I also used the bunny ears... but simply made them wider and shorter. This pattern is cool because you can make such a wide variety of toys out of one simple pattern. The adaptations are only limited to your imagination. If you are a member of Ravelry you can look HERE for a cool giraffe based on the same pattern. In the future I'd like to knit these in the round and make I-chords for the limbs.
I have been knitting lately... but most of the stuff I'm making is for a baby shower that I won't be attending until the end of July. I don't want to spoil the surprise so I haven't had a lot of new stuff to post. I'm going to be pretty busy for the next couple of weeks... but when I return I'll have some cool new stories to share.

I haven't posted in a while. I'm in the process of working on Creativity Boot Camp and I have been busy creating stuff on my other blog worth a fig. That doesn't mean that I've stopped knitting. I am working on writing a bib pattern and also one for another washcloth.
I'll be back here soon to post pictures and patterns for my new creations.

I just finished knitting this retro ribbed hand towel and the tweedish cloth in these really bright colors... Now I just have to find someone to give them to... Anyone have a bright orange kitchen???
I'm trying to finish a bunch of projects I have on the needles right now. Many of these I won't be able to post here until August because they are a surprise for my brother and sister-in-law who will be having a baby soon. I'm not sure if they read my knitting blog... but better safe than sorry.
