I’ve been doing illicit knitting! Only an hour here and there but you have to keep it secret as I’m supposed to be working on deadlines, however it was impossible to resist this amazingly cute bunny!
The pattern is by Juju Vail for Loop and it’s a freebie on the Loop Knit Lounge blog. I used some scraps of leftover Shetland 4ply with a little bit of alpaca for the fluffy tail and worked on a 2.5mm needle which gives a tight tension and some structure to the finished item. As you work in the round it creates a tiny pocket for the body which you can then either squeeze a small Easter egg into or attach a pin and wear it as a brooch.
It looks like the Easter bunny will be bringing one for my Mum and lucky Mum I say!
As for the title of this post, it’s a quote from Con Air starring Nicolas Cage and John Malkovich which has to be one of the most hilarious and ridiculous films I’ve ever seen. If you’re in the mood for full-on action and explosions then I highly recommend it! Warning of violence:
