Rabbit, Rabbit!

It's the first of the month, people, so you know what that means... say your Rabbits for good luck. He he.

The schitzo knit-a-thon is complete. I am down to just one project. Two of the finished objects are here:

As I am working out the kinks on my adaptation of the Roomy Baby Cardigan, I decided that I would knit another one in the 12 month size. I used Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (yes, the stuff my LYS was discontinuing because it wasn't good enough!) and it's very soft. I have some left to make another one, which I will at some point as the sleeves are what needs to be resized. Look how tiny they are at the wrist! Yikes... at least it's ribbing so it stretches. And I got a bit carried away with buttonholes. There's 9 stinking buttons on this little sweater.
The afghan is made from Caron Simply Soft. Not sure if I would use it again. Perhaps if they made a chunky version I would use it to make another afghan. It shows the cables nicely. For anyone thinking cables are hard and intimidating... think again. This was my first attempt and it came out marvelous!
I'm trying to inspire these girls to knit.

But as you can see, they were much more interested in just wearing my knits and posing for the camera. They gave me an extensive list of items they need knitted. Not sure when I will get to it, but eventually it will find its way on the needles. And do you notice the Nipple Hat? She loved it and took it home, nipple and all. (But I didn't point out the obvious nipple atop her head. She's only 12!)
Stay tuned for the socks...they will be appearing on the DH's duck feet on a computer monitor near you.

Did your husband tell you about the mysterious oversized take-out container that appeared on your porch this afternoon? ;)
