You can tell my thoughts were at the beach this weekend as I made a camera-toting beach bunny to take a picture of my mar-r-r-rvolously buff muscle-bound buck I made last week. -grin- They even have fluffy tails. I wasn’t happy with how Mr. Buck came together, hence the second bunny. Ms. Doe was much more satisfying, with most of the parts knitted in a round rather than flat and sewn together as I expanded on the original instructions. The hat I crocheted rather than knitted, thinking it made a smoother piece. I might make another, though three’s a crowd . . .
I also took the down-time this weekend to knit up a tea cozy for a new tea pot as I was getting tired of it going cold far faster than I could drink it. The heavy cast iron is lovely, but it transfers the heat fast and I can’t pop it in the micro. The zebra pattern I came up with suits it, and the best part is that I actually USED UP a ball of yarn. Phew! I swear, I’m not buying another skein until I get rid of at least five others. I might have that chance this week if the proposed storm hits us the way they predict.
Work wise, I should finish up my personal rewrite on book 13 early this week, and then shove it in a drawer for about a year to percolate. I really need to decide what I’m doing next. Seriously, I’ve not had this kind of freedom for almost ten years. I hardly know what to do with myself. Knit more bunnies, perhaps?
