WIP and a Swiss roll

Posted by

Just dropping by with a quick update on this weeks WIPs.
My rabbit is just waiting to be put together. A little embroidery is needed to the face. Adding the features is my least favourite part. You can totally change the character with a few misplaced stitches.
I don’t love this bunny as much as my Brenda Ballerina but hopefully that will change.

On the other hand I’m loving my daybreak shawl. I enjoy watching the blue changing as the stripes develop. It’s definitely one of those ‘just one more row’ knits.

Last night I came home to this. A rather perfect looking Swiss roll courtesy of my daughter.

She had been practicing her fatless sponges for school. What a midweek treat!

  1. Both coming along nicely I see:) The shawl must be addictive; I know what you mean about “just one more row”! What a fab surprise coming home to a cake that you didn’t have to cook yourself. If only….


  2. That shawl is mega gorgeous. The bunny is super sweet. Which reminds me, I must knit the one I have a pattern for… And you have an ideal daughter! Appreciative of your crafting skills and makes cake. If she needs an honourary aunt, I’m offering!


  3. If you could give a shout-out that I made this bunny as well I’d really appreciate it! I’m trying to gain more followers. I used the same colours you are using as well. I love how yours is turning out! (www.afriendlikeben.com)


  4. I’m looking forward to seeing your poor, forlorn little bunny, completed and with a lovely smile to boot 🙂

    I can see why you find yourself doing “just 1 more row” on your shawl and as for Freyas’ cake, what a fab surprise 🙂


      1. That’s the problem with crafting though isn’t it, those looking on see a beautifully crafted project but the creator of the item sees every little error no matter how small or obscure. Been there, done that 🙂

        I look forward to seeing the finished bunny how you see her 🙂


  5. That shawl is absolutely gorgeous, and striping the blue with cream really shows off the shifting shades of blue. And please could you ask your daughter whether I may eat her Swiss roll? It looks so delicious.
