I have a long list of things I want to make ... endless in fact. But this week has been super frustrating for two reasons 1) I haven't seemed to have 'done' as much as I wanted and 2) Fun Fur yarn. It all seemed like such a good idea to knit a fluffy bunny - it was going to be fluffy, cute and wonderful.
But something went horribly wrong ... Fun Fur is easy to knit with - but once you have knitted - you can't see anything - and I mean anything - the fur is rather furry (erm .. perhaps I hadn't appreciated the 'fur' part in the label) and you can't count your stitches - see your seams - its just a mass of fur.
So I have no idea if one leg is longer than the other or if one arm should have been sewn higher or lower - and the nose - I can't find the little nose stitches anywhere!! I could only guess. I crocheted the soles of the feet from my favorite Debbie Bliss yarn (which I decided late last summer was just too expensive to use for bunny making - but it is SO soft and yummy.)
I tried to sew a face - but that was impossible due to the fur - then I tried to give a little 'hair cut' around the face - but the result was so terrifying I'm embarrassed and ashamed to share the face with you. It didn't help that I ran out of the fun fur for the last ear - so far he only has one .....
Regardless of all this flying fuzz - I feel there is potential in the little fur ball (below is his fluffy side profile) ... but maybe he wasn't meant to be a bunny? Perhaps he is a bear? or a doggie? or a tiger? or just a good old fashioned yeti?
