Here are my first two softies for the "Softies for Christchurch" collection.
I have a few others cut out and a few almost finished (including a robot which I am hoping will work out as I am just sort of making it up as I go along!) These two are all done though. Hoping to send the lot off later this week.
The knitted bunny has caused quite a bit of grief this week as he is almost identical to my son's precious "Dookie", the rabbit I knitted him just before he was born. I used the same pattern and almost the same colour wool, so I've had to hide "Dookie II" to protect him from the kind of treatment the other one gets :)
If you're making softies for Christchurch I hope it's going well - I'd love to hear about what you've been making!
6 March: Just in case anyone was wondering about the patterns I used, I used a Patons pattern that came as part of a kit, which is available online in several stores and should be in most knitting supplies stores that stock Patons products. I used the beautiful Sublime Merino/Silk/Cashmere blend in shade "Pebble" that I used previously for my newborn hat and mits project. The gingham bunny was a free downloadable pattern from here.
