In which I create an adorable bunny...

I have fallen deeply in love with knitting toys and other cute things. While I was going crazy for my high school class schedule to be posted I finished up this little bunny.

It was a super easy pattern and it only took me a couple of hours. The shaping was very easy and the only part I had a little trouble with was the finishing.

I've started a new project. Can you guess it? It's starts with a 'k', is super-duper cute, and Australian. Do you know what it is?

In which I make an incredible discovery...

I was at grandma's house this weekend when I made the coolest discovery. It was amazing. I mentioned to her how I'm learning to crochet (which I can't seem to get the hang of-ugh) and she found a treasure trove of crafty things.

In her closet she found a bin full of yarn and crochet hooks. The most amazing part? Her mother-in-law was and avid crafter and always was buying knitting and crochet magazines. My grandma still has them! I was able to look through crafting magazines from as early as 1953. Some magazines boasted "4 full pages of color!, but the advertisements were even funnier. I need to get some pictures up.

So as I mentioned I'm learning to crochet. I found this adorable book for making amigurumi and I fell in love! I MUST make these adorable critters.

Well, until next time!
