Florence the Big Cuddly Easter Bunny

florence

Meet Florence.  She’s a big cuddly bunny who is in search of a good home.

Florence will be the star prize at our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny on 31 March.

I used the Big Cuddly Bunny pattern from Purlbee.com which is available for free here.  I knitted her in Twilley’s of Stamford Freedom Wool in shades 430 and 401.

So, to stand a chance of snuggling up to cuddly Florence you’ll have to come along to our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny.

hello stitchers

I’m busy getting all spring like for our Easter egg hunt event at Wolverhampton Art Gallery on 31st March 2010.  It seems that the official signs of spring are here.  I’ve recently been to the Cotswolds and there were loads of snowdrops

Our Easter egg hunt event is part of the Jann Haworth exhibition.  The lovely ladies from Sugarfoot Stomp will provide sounds to stitch to, there will be a cake stall and of course an Easter egg hunt round the gallery.

I’ve finally cracked (sorry!) how to knit in the round on double pointed needles.  It’s taken a while – but it now means that I can get on and make the knitted eggs for the Easter egg hunt.

Here’s the first one.  The pattern came from purl bee who have 2 amazing shops in New York – one for patchwork and one for knitting and crochet.
