A Handknit Easter Bunny

I made this from Debbie Bliss' Nursery Knits when
I was expecting David.

The bunny booties and rabbit are cute enough
to deserve a close up.

Oh my I can relate with this. The kids have booties knitted by their great-grandnan but I haven't the heart to tell her they get kicked off within minutes....

hahaha awwww, so cute and so funny. babies never want things to remain on their feet. sadly, i've never left that stage of infancy...

Michelle, you are just too darn talented!!

Stephanie said...

What you knit too! You are supermom!

My son loves looking at that picture of your baby. I don't know why he wants to see a crying baby, but I've promised we'll go back after I comment.

That is about the most adorable outfit I have ever seen.

Neighbor Jane Payne said...

Wow! That outfit is darling...and yes, the rabbit and booties did deserve a close-up. It's a shame he didn't appreciate fine fashion.

Sandy said...

Isn't that the way it always is? I call it the "cardboard box" syndrome (i.e. the free box is much more fascinating than the valued object inside of it).

My kids always adored the "freebie" t-shirts that my friends gave me. They'd balk at the beautiful outfits I'd pay good money for, but the old shirts with the logo peeling? They'd fight to the death for those.

For what it's worth, he looks precious...and I'm amazed that you can knit like that!

I am so impressed. I haven't 'mastered' the knitting arts, though I would love to try.

I love the way he appreciated your hard work too.

Kids.

Daisy said...

The bunnies are adorable! Maybe it was just baby gas. :)

Mamma said...

That is gorgeous!! I'm very impressed!

Leslie said...

That is the cutest little outfit! The photo is priceless, too.

Jordan said...

I didn't know you knit! That's excellent. What kind of yarn did you use?

Melessa said...

Cute! Cute! Cute! (The outfit, the booties, AND the baby)

my4kids said...

oh my goodness that outfit is so cute! To bad he didn't appreciate it. Joshua hated anything on his feet as a baby also but the rest were fine. I have been known to crochet but I haven't done any knitting yet. It has become an expectation in my circle that when a baby is born they will get a homemade blanket from me. I never make them alike though, have to change things around a bit.

Robin said...

That is just adorable, and I am SO impressed that you made it yourself! Love the "full of personality" photo too.

scribbit said...

I used whatever wool they called for in the pattern, I can't remember exactly. A wool though, definitely a wool.

strauss said...

Oh that outfit is so darn cute. You are so clever to have made that. I am useless at such things.

kim said...

Oh that is too cute!
I wish I could knit like that!
I'm getting there.

Amy said...

WOW! That is amazing- you are so crafty! I love those!

Heather said...

That is an awesome outfit! You bowl me over with your knitting ability! I want to learn to knit and my Grandma wants to teach me, but we live 30 minutes apart, so it's hard to find time to get together.
I love the picture! It captures the essence of dressing a baby up all too well!

Lei said...

Lei said...

JAM said...

I know that was a lot of work, but he's not having any of it in that photo, is he. He's like Ralphie in A Christmas Story when he was made to put on the bunny suit his aunt made him. Great work on your part though!

The Tour Marm said...

Ooooo! This is adorable!

My family's pet name for me is, 'Bunny Rabbit' or 'Bun Rab' for short.

Have a blessed Easter!

thordora said...

I have to buy that book for the bunny pattern!

So cute!

Christie said...

oh. my. gosh is that the cutest thing i have ever seen in my life. That's talent, girl! What a cute outfit!!! I'm dying!!

luckyzmom said...

Too cute! You can save it for your first grandbaby!

My Mom knit a bunch of amazing booties for my daughter which she never wore because her feet were too large for them at birth!

oh my!!! I (heart) that set!! Too cute! Don't you love it when you kids do not like something you labour over????

Damselfly said...

I am laughing so hard over here, and I don't know if it's because of the look on his face, your comments about the look on his face, or the cuteness of the outfit you made! (You made!)

The Purloined Letter said...

Oh, goodness! What a sweet little outfit. I knit a DB bear outfit for a very young friend--and she had exactly the same reaction!
