I found out a little while ago that 3 February sees the start of the Chinese Year of the Rabbit. Although I have never owned a rabbit, I have been friends with several over the years – they are endearing, enchanting little animals. So, I felt that I couldn’t let this special date pass without celebration. I am currently completing a special Year of the Rabbit embroidery pattern, but it’s not quite ready to show yet. So meanwhile … I have decided that I must part with this little fellow …
He’s been sitting on my desk helping me with my work for a little while now. But I can’t help thinking he might be happier in a home where there was someone to play with him, so feel the time has come to let him go. He’s handknitted (by me) in pure wool and stands about 13″ tall to the tips of his ears. His eyes are felt and his whiskers embroidered so he’d make a lovely gift for a child, with ribbon removed of course!
If you’d like the chance to win this young bunny then please leave a comment below telling me what his new name would be. (I call him Bunnikins, but that’s just me!) before midnight (GMT) Sunday 9 January. The winner will be chosen by random selection and bunny will be despatched promptly (overseas is fine).
Good luck everyone – and I’ll be back with my new pattern a bit later this week.
