Hunny Bunnies

Spring is coming and so are the bunnies! Here are two new patterns i have tried just in time for Spring and Easter!
Both are bunnies, and both so different!This little guy is a pattern i got from a wonderful blog/shop called Twinsknit He is an amigurumi style bunny and super easy and fast to knit up. The good folks at Twinsknit are chock full of wonderful patterns and are ok with the sale of any finished toys made from their patterns... I LOVE their easy to follow instructions and bought a few patterns with intentions of buying many more!
And i am happy with the way this guy turned out...He was also surprisingly easy to knit up and is much more sophisticated than most of my other projects so far. You can also buy this pattern from Barbara Prime of Fuzzy Mitten in her Etsy shop. Barbara is also amazingly generous with her policies about selling toys made from her patterns, and even sharing the patterns with friends and families. You can read about her pattern policies here.
Anyway, both of these bunnies will be available either in my Etsy shop, or my daughter's brick and mortar shop, The Paper Sparrow in downtown Troy, NY. I'm working on yet another bunny pattern i bought from Twinsknit and i'll be posting that as soon as i finish her...
Oh i am having so much fun playing with all these knitted and crocheted toys!

Thanks everybody! The big bunny was different for me so i was a little uneven in my stitches, but i think a little child won't mind, especially if it is love at first sight! :)
