Yarn Along–Tiny Dress

IMG_1881IMG_1880 IMG_1883 IMG_1885I’ve had a lot of swatches on the needles this week that I just can’t seem to get right.  I’m working on my first submission for an actual publication and I have to admit, I’m kind of obsessing.  Today I’ll be working on the 9th (and hopefully last) iteration of my shawl swatch!

In the meantime, I needed some simple, adorable knitting to keep my fingers busy while I mulled over the submission.  I found this tiny white rabbit at JoAnn Fabrics once and decided it looked a fair bit like the Miss Maggie Rabbit and her partner (wearing this) that I made last year, so I decided it was time to add to their family 🙂  Then the naked baby bunny sat cooped up in my knitting dresser, begging for an outfit, for months.  And I finally decided this week that it was time to churn one out.  This is the same pattern for Miss Maggie’s Little Knitted Dress for Rabbits just worked in Knit Picks Shadow Tonal yarn on size 3 needles (I probably could have gone down to a 2, but this is not something I’m reknitting!)

I also picked up Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which I’ve had for quite some time but haven’t read yet.  I usually prefer to read on my Kindle, but with all the pictures included in the book, I thought an actual print copy would be far superior.  The jury is still out on whether I like it yet…I’ve only made it through the first chapter.

  1. I want to read that book too – simply because I can’t go past the title! The dress is so lovely, and those bunnies are just too adorable.

  2. The bunny and her dress are absolutely precious! Love that color.

    I haven’t read the book yet but I’ve seen others say they enjoyed it greatly – hope you do as well!

  3. That little dress couldn’t be more darling. And your Maggie Rabbits are perfection! I SO want to knit a hoodie for my Maggie. I bought fabric to make her a Christmas dress… back before Christmas, never got it done. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
