Giveaway: Little Knitted Bunny for St Patrick’s Day

by Helen on March 17, 2012

Teasel

Today is St Patrick’s Day… and although I’m not from Ireland, my stitching grandmother was – she had the very Irish name of Mary McDowell.  Her family settled in England in the early 1900′s when she was a young child.  She met and fell in love with my grandfather before the First World War but before they could marry he was sent to the trenches of Flanders.  In 1916 she received an official telegram notifying her that he was missing, presumed dead and she grieved for him for 12 long months before she received further notification that in fact he had been injured and was now in a prisoner of war camp.  Imagine how she must have felt!  They married upon his return and were together for 30 years before her tragically early death in the 1950s. 

I never met Mary, but my own Mum (her daughter) told me many stories about her – she was an accomplished seamstress and needlewoman, skills that were in great demand in World War 2, and the era of “make do and mend.”  She passed her talent and store of stitching knowledge onto my Mum who in turn taught me to sew – and I still have one or two examples of her work tucked away.

So I thought it would be a great idea to celebrate St Patrick’s Day with a giveaway – one of my little knitted bunnies.  Above you see Teasel, dressed in a suitably coloured jumper of Irish green.  But if he’s going to be a St Patrick’s giveaway I feel he should have an Irish name.   If you’d like the opportunity to win him, then please leave a comment below and – just for fun – please suggest a new Irish name for him.  The winner will be chosen by random selection and yes, I will post overseas.  The draw will close at midnight GMT tomorrow Sunday, 18 March.  Good luck everyone!!

Hello….
Thank you for the opportunity to win this adorable bunny….
I am mostly Irish and I loved the story about your grandmother.
It is wonderful to hear those stories about our family, isn’t it?
The Bunny would have to be named Danny Boy….after the wonderful
Irish song.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and a “top of the mornin” too!!!!!!!!

Karen Donovan March 17, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Hi Helen – LOVE LOVE your blog! I recommend the name of Ian. That’s my father’s name, a first generation Irish-American! His mother emigrated from Leeds & his father from Dublin (FYI my mother’s family also came over from Ireland). Ian is such a beautiful sounding name. I’ve always thought it is a down to earth, sensible name, even just a tad “bookish” (or “nerdy”!). The vest your rabbit is wearing lends him the air of a sensible even scholarly fellow! Cheers & Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Jacksonville FL!

So cute and would love to win this adorable rabbit! Would have to name him Padraic O’Callaghan! Padraic is the Gaelic spelling of Patrick for St. Paddy’s Day and O’Callaghan means bright headed..white on his face and he looks like a very bright fellow!

Milou March 17, 2012 at 12:37 pm

I Love your grand-mother’s story, this wonderful result is full of hope …
So I suggest as a name for your knitted bunny : Aingeal, in the memory of this messenger who should have known, your grand-father wasn’t dead!
Hope I hear good news from you…

Elizabeth March 17, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Adorable! I’ve always loved your little knitted animals :) I suggested “Donagh” (brown warrior” as an Irish name for him. Perhaps a bit fierce for such a gentle-looking soul, but maybe hinting at a brave heart inside!

Colleen Bartell March 17, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Love his little sweater. You could call him Sean.

Reply

Kate Cooke March 17, 2012 at 12:39 pm

I too, learned my sewing and embroidery techniques from my mother. Such a pity that these days unless you have a mother or grandmother to pass on these skills, the opportunity to participate in the gentle, and soothing, art of the needle is very limited. Thank you for your great site. The rabbit could be called Paddy o’Green.

Reply

Annemie Rook March 17, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Forgot the name … lol … let’s see .. how about Owen. This means “well born” which I think is absolutely the case. This bunny stole my heart! By the way, I couldn’t find a pattern. Is this available or will it be available in the future?

My favourite Irish name for a boy is “Padraic”. It’s the Irish version of Patrick so I think it would be a good name for him on St. Paddy’s Day. :)

Gingini March 17, 2012 at 1:43 pm

What a cute lovely bunny you made. He seems a little timid to me, so a name like Oisin would suit him. Not the name of a famous fighter or a champion, it wasn’t him. Oisin means small deer. :)

Kathi DeSimone March 17, 2012 at 1:46 pm

Adorable bunny! Most of the names I had in mind have already been mentioned, but my favorite name for him is Finnigan O’Hare (or Finn for short). On the whimsical side is Bailey (not sure it’s very Irish, except for the cream of course lol) and Heff (which is not Irish but hey..who knows more about bunnies then he does??).

A naming contest – oh what fun!!!! He’s adorable and I think he name should be ‘QUINLAN”

One year, when I was a nursery school teacher, there was a boy named Teague which means poet or philosopher in Gaelic. There was also a girl named Saoirse which means freedom in Gaelic. They were both adorable, but I’m sure that little girl will be spending a lot of time during her life spelling her name over and over again since it was not pronounced anything likd the way it looked. I think Teague is a great name for your Irish bunny.

My niece is 8 years old and she still loves her stuffed toys. Her name is Niamh (said n-e-e-v). She’s often called Niamh Sneeze. However, seeing that called the bunny a ‘he’, I’m opting for the name of the saint of the day on which my niece was born … FANAHAN

Delcia Rosenow March 17, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Such a story of courage and hope asks for a name that keeps that memory alive; I choose Malachi O’Reilly. Malachi meaning “my angel; messenger of God” (certainly he was beloved and became a message of joy to her) and Reilly meaning “courageous, valiant” (the courage and valor he possessed to endure as a prisoner of war).

(I do like the name Teasel you originally named him–have a few of them in an arrangement. They may be prickly, but they seem to sing out amongs the other dry wheat and oats.)

Hi, I love the bunny but both my names have been suggested.
Malachi – A name linked to the High King Maoilseachlainn “devotee of St. Sechnall” one of Saint Patrick’s first companions.
Odhran – Odhran was the charioteer of St. Patrick.
So I am going to suggest Fionn Mac Cool who is a central character in Irish folklore and mythology and bunnies and folklore go well together I think. Hopefully this is still good enough for the St Patricks Day theme. Of course you could go with the King’s name mentioned above. It is bigger than the bunny and hard to pronounce but I think it works! :)
