Bunny started yesterday afternoon while Six and I were waiting for Eleven and her classmates to return from an all-day field trip. The buses were half an hour late; plenty of knitting time. I did the rest of the square (about 7” a side, which is how Bunny begins) during the Scripps Spelling Bee last night. To bow out on “Weltschmerz” (“sentimental pessimism”), to win with “Ursprache” (“a reconstructed hypothetical parent language” – an ultimate “language of origin,” as the spellers kept asking): would you dare to do something that perfect if you were writing a story? I sewed Bunny up before bed. Six found him on his desk this morning.
The pattern for Bunny is here -- flashbacks to ninth grade geometry! (The Bunny Trail started back at the Mason Dixon KAL with a post from sunidesus -- Thanks! ). The yarn is TLC Amore in Sand (it was just sitting there, waiting for its fuzzy destiny); assembled with the reverse stockinette side out. He’s stuffed with the Amore, too; improvising, because there wasn’t anything else to hand. It worked well, though, because that meant no chance of the stuffing showing through, even when Bunny went through some pretty creative stitching, including an ear job that would make a plastic surgeon proud. (The word is “otoplasty.” O, T, O, P, L….)
