Minty, the rabbit

I've been into knitting lots recently. Now that Easter is approaching I thought I could knit some bunnies. Perhaps you remember my first knitted rabbit. The pattern taken from Arne & Carlos book Easter Knits. Eggs, bunnies and chicks with a fabulous twist. Time I had a go at another Easter bunny :) Actually I started knitting this minty green rabbit months ago, I just couldn't finish it for a long time until one day I told myself: That's it! No more UFOs! No more leaving the unfinished stuff behind.
So here he is! Minty, the rabbit :) Finished and ready to be adopted by a soft toys loving kid :)


All I had to do is to help him out of his rabbity "deafness" and knit him a pair of ears as well as his jumper :)


I'm pleased. I think he came out quite well. The stitches are smooth, the yarn knitted well, the colour looks fresh.


Doesn't he look happy, this little soft fella? :) I'm also happy with this tiny cute stripey jumper :)


Minty has quickly found his companions - the rapping bear from Muller Rice and Monkey from PG Tips :) If you watch the British adverts you must surely know these advertising characters. 


They have even had their photos taken at a photographer's :D



Cool, huh? :)
Have a happy crafty weekend x x x
