Binary Solo

So what happened to the felted bunny?? I admit that many things happened to the felted bunny. His ears were too big and heavy and his head, too small. I only half-heartedly felted it and then gave up. It took forever to dry. And I knew from the very beginning that I would not do a very good job embroidering the face, so I did what came natural to me and gave up on that as well – even before trying to embroider. I am actually the most proud of that. Maybe next Easter . . .

But the flying by the seat of my pants did not end there. I decided completely off-the-cuff that I HAD to knit the Quickie Cowl as soon as the yarn shop opened on Easter Monday so I could buy a skein of Misti Alpaca Chunky as nothing in my stash would do. (Why don’t we have an Easter Tuesday and an Easter Wednesday too??) Don’t worry, this story has a better ending. Well, I am pretty sure it will have a happy ending as I have only knit half of it, but I love this yarn!! I dare someone NOT to love it. I had to laugh when one of my co-workers asked me if I would knit her a blanket with the Alpaca Chunky – I told her it would cost her in the upwards of three to four hundred dollars, and she asked if I could use a cheaper, similar yarn. I simply replied that if I knew of a cheaper, similar yarn that I would be using said cheaper, similar yarn. I did offer to knit her up a Quickie Cowl though for $20 and some change.

Regretfully I have no pictures for this post, and I thought of stealing some pictures off the web for visual interest, but I was overcome by the guilt. I really need to charge the batteries for the camera or just get some new ones. I do have this really old picture of my littlest monkey that I have never posted. Good times.

What park is that? I need somewhere like that to go and still don't know this area very well.

It's Greenway Park off of Springbank - between Wharncliffe and Wonderland. We are lucky enough to be able to walk there!

Cute monkey!

Well, I'm sorry your bunny didn't work out. Usually embroidery just doesn't work for me either. But I'm proud of you for giving up! (I think.)

I haven't tried Misti Alpaca - sweet. I'm glad you're getting a happy ending.
