So this weekend it got a little chilly (for SoCal) and I was inspired to take up my knitting needles again.
I made a scarf for my friend, Jess, because she was a little stressed out and sent it to her a few days ago.
The pattern is based on one from the forums here. I modified it to be less-wide because I didn't have quite as much yarn as it called for. The original pattern is here. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127077.0
This is what it looked like in the end (a close-up, so you can see detail.)
I also knit a tiny bunny based on a pattern from www.heartstringsfib erarts.com. It is for my nephew. The bunny in the example was pink and fuzzy, but my brother is vehemently oppsed to giving his son anything "girly" (Silly, I know!), so I made this bunny blue and manly. It was really simple and quick. Unfortunately, it also looks sort of like an armadillo.
I hope he likes it anyway!
