Sunshine Watermelon Easter Bunny
Pattern: fuzzymitten Easter Bunny. Twisted rib pullover-just winged it
Yarn: Rowans Cashoff for bunny, Sunshine yarn in watermelon
Instructions are easy to follow. I wish it was in the round since my seaming leaves a lot to be desired. Not sure why his arms are in the "surfing" position". I think it's because of the way I knit on the sleeves.
Having grown up in Nuuanu, I always think of Hawaii as being cool, wet and green. I remember returning from college in Kansas and stepping off the plane into the lush greenery of my valley. No doubt that is why I returned here, right back to where I grew up. My folks built a new house in the back for themselves, and my dad still tends his garden at 87. My mom has thing about the cardinal in the photo. She thinks it's "her" bird and gets mad when the doves steal her bird's food. Heh. It's a control issue, I think. (click the picture to enlarge)
I found the Project Spectrum bush on my walk around the neighborhood.
