In which The Bunny Maker succeeds at something - finally.

At the start of this year I announced to anyone who was listening (so that's just me and the bunnies) that I was going to teach myself to crochet.  I can knit.  I hate knitting.  I hate it because I can't do it properly.  I hated to crochet too, the one time I had tried and got all tangled and confuzzled.  So, 2011 was going to be the year I got on and did it because, quite honestly, I can just about most other things with my hands.  The first things I did were a little doggie and some Ninjas, just to warm up.  Then, finally, what I wanted to do all along ..... bunnies!!!!

He is purple with green inner ears, with lots of soft fuzz, plus a removable hat (because it might get hot).
Of course he now belongs to BunSon No.1 who has named him, with great originality, 'Bwunny'.
Anyone who knows anything about crochet would take one look and gasp at the terrible stitching and the fact that neither arms nor legs are the same size as each other.  But, for my third crochet attempt - i'm pretty happy.
We've just come back from a stonking week on the Isle of Wight.  The boys swam, caught crabs and built yet more stone piles.

It felt like summer and noone wanted to leave but we had to because the gorgeous Henry was arriving. 

He is a lovely, Mini Rex boy with THE softest coat in the entire world.  Nosy and Spike might be soft and fluffy but Henry feels like satin.


I bought them a new house, just in case they overheard me cooing over Henry's coat and felt sad.  Oh the excuses I can come up with!


  1. I think bwunny is very cute and I love his fluffy hat!

  2. Oh the fluffy ears are wonderful - and I think crochet is very forgiving. I learnt how to create knitting patterns by free-crocheting (yes, I know it sounds mad, but it's true)

    I'm very jealous of your isle of wight trip, it must be about time we went there again.
