Mystery Knitting Project...Completely Finished! *Ü*

I'm so excited to share Primrose "Rosie" Bunny with you! You've been so encouraging as I've revealed her bit by bit and now you can see her in her adorable outfit! Tada!






I've had to temporarily give up my usual photo taking spot in front of our big picture window. A sure sign that spring is on the way is when Steve brings in the greenhouse. We needed to move the chair I use to another room for now to make room for it. So, I pulled the ottoman in front of the French doors and tried my best to capture Rosie in all her glory.

And now I can share the fabulous Etsy shop where I purchased the pattern, Mary Jane's Tearoom. Oh you have got to go see the other adorable bunnies she has created. And she has a blog, too! Mary Jane's Tearoom Blog. She is just about ready to share her latest creation and from the little bits I've seen, I have a feeling that I will be buying the pattern to create Candy! I LOVE the colors she chose. I can truly say that Susan is absolutely wonderful. I've emailed her a few times with questions and she has always gotten back to me very quickly. She's very patient and encouraging. I'd definitely recommend her patterns if you are interested in knitting.

Here are the measurements for Rosie according to the pattern:
Head to Toe-15 inches
Arm Span-11 inches
Arm Circumference-4 inches
Toe to Heel-3 1/4 inches
Foot Circumference-6 1/4 inches
Leg Length-6 1/4 inches
Leg Circumference-4 1/2 inches

Mine are probably different because I didn't use the same type of yarn as Susan used in the pattern. I used Red Heart Super Saver worsted for the most part, because it's what I have in my stash.

Anyway, I hope it was worth the wait and the teasing I've done as I've created her and shared bit by bit. She sure was fun to knit. I've learned quite a bit as I've mentioned before. I love the mattress stitch method for sewing seams together. I love the extra bit of oomph that ironing lightly and carefully adds to the piece. I love the ears. And that tail! I tried a larger template to make it as an experiment and I loved how it looked so I didn't even bother making a smaller one. Technically, you can take the clothes off the doll, but I don't think I want the girls to mess with her. LOL

Thanks so much for sticking with me on this project. I've had a lot of fun and hope you did, too.

Well worth the wait, my friend! Rosie is so cute I can hardly stand it - from her sweet Mary Jane shoes to her incredibly lovely face. Great job!!

And you know what? If I could make stuff like you can, I probably wouldn't mess with the cards. LOL.

It looks like you had a good day, which is awesome! And what, pray tell, are you up to next?
