My lovely friend Sunny Kate is having a baby, so I wanted to knit her a pressie. My mother sent me some yarn in a care package, and it looks like it would be great for some kind of baby thing, because it’s washable and has lots of pastel colours in it. But what to make?

Earlier this year, another friend (Miss Digger) went to Australia and brought me back a couple of knitting magazines. In the back was a pattern for an easy-to-knit bunny rabbit, that was supposed to be made with wool and then felted, but I thought I might try using this washable synthetic yarn from my mother to see if it would work. Lo and behold, after a mere few hours of knitting, stuffing and sewing, Wonky Bunny was born.

I call him Wonky Bunny because he didn’t turn out exactly the same on both sides, mainly due to my inability (or lack of desire) to accurately count stitches. But here he is in all his wonky glory!
