One with a hoppy ending.

That’s the answer. What’s the question? I’ll leave you pondering that one, while I introduce my new knitting project:

Don't you just love a new project!

Don’t you just love a new project!

Can you guess what I’m going to be making? There’s a clue in the title of this post… Yes, it’s a little rabbit soft toy, which I’m making with a wonderful kit from Temporary Measure. Where did I get my mits on this kit, you ask? Why, the ever-glorious Fringe, of course! I’d been eyeing it up for a while and, anxious not to somehow find it sold out like the coveted crocheted sheep, I took the plunge.

The kit includes:

  • Instructions (thank goodness)
  • 2 balls x 50g of Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran in Mustard
  • 4mm needles
  • Oddment of darker wool for eyes and nose
  • Tapestry needle
  • Stuffing
  • Fabric for the ear linings

The fabric for the ear linings is beautiful:

Imagine if we all had fabric-lined ears... Yes, ok, that would be a bit odd.

I was going to start this last night but couldn’t. Why? Because we were watching the next instalment of our current Scandi fix, 1864, that’s why. And, fluent as I like to pretend I am in Danish, subtitles and new knitting projects – as I know from bitter experience – do not mix. We had fun, nonetheless, spotting all the Danish actors we know from Borgen and The Killing, with the added bonus that, among the German cast members, we even spotted Ludwig Trepte from the excellent Generation War.

But back to rabbits… So I haven’t started yet, but will – I hope – this evening. And the end result should look something like this:

Flopsy bunny.

Flopsy bunny.

In the meantime, have you identified the question that’s answered by this post title? No? OK, here you go: What kind of book does a rabbit like to read? Let’s hope this project has a hoppy ending, too!
