SWATCH: Bunny and Elephant Riding the Mail

Bunny and Elephant jumped into a padded mail envelope and are flying off to the United Kingdom

Bunny and Elephant jumped into a padded mail envelope and are flying off to the United Kingdom to meet Lizzie and Christina.

My goals was to finish these two knitted animal dolls by UK Sarah’s visit. I downloaded the patterns from Little Cotton Rabbits. You can find the patterns at http://www.littlecottonrabbits.typepad.co.uk. Julie Williams has a blog called Little Cotton Rabbits: knitting and living with an autistic son. She is the Beatrix Potter of the knitting world. I am in love with these patterns and I love the results. They are a little fiddly to knit, so I will probably only make them rarely.

I am working on two more dresses so they have a change of clothes. I grew attached to Bunny and Elephant so it was hard not to name them. I will leave this to Lizzie (Christina is a bit young to have a say.)

Check out Julie Williams’ beautiful blog. If you are a knitter and you want a moderately challenging project that is hugely rewarding (you will be delighted), then order one of the patterns and give it a go.
