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.heartstringsfiberarts.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!
