Some of you may remember the "Milo's Bunny" crochet square I designed last year to honor my grandfather (and if you don't, you can find it here). When I found out that Lisa, bunny-mom to Buttons and Bella of Little fluffy adventures, was expecting her first child, I knew that a "Milo's Bunny" blanket would be a perfect gift.
I'm still trying to work out the kinks in the two-color version (it's been a huge battle between the seriously-fussy side of me and the lazy-wench side of me; one side wants it perfect and the other side doesn't want to deal with it), so I went with the one-color (with a little white for the tail) version:
Here's a closeup of the detail:
And a closeup of one of the squares:
Of course, the baby showed up well before I finished it, and it was looking like he'd be a teenager before the blanket arrived in the mail (gotta love the postal service--next time, I'll swim it across the Atlantic myself, it'll get there faster), but it did arrive and all is good.
"Ahem...aren't you forgetting something?"
Um...no, I don't think so.
"Yes, you're forgetting the part where I helped you...
or I should say, tried to help you, and got no appreciation for my efforts?"
Mick, you tried to eat the yarn--that is not helping.
"I was not trying to eat the yarn! I was trying to cut it for you!
Hmph, how rude...that's the last time I try to help you with a project..."
Oh, boy...I'm in for some serious snubbing now. I guess I'd better go find the treatball...catch you later!
