My household has no shortage of bunnies, but I couldn't help myself. Oscar needed friends.
Meet Susie and Moe. Can you believe that they're made from a knitted square/swatch? It's true. Here's how. While watching a DVD, I knit two little stockinette stitch squares from a mohair-blend yarn that I had purchased quite a while ago for a project that I had dreamed up, but never took the time to actually start. I enjoyed the mindless knitting; it was perfect for a lazy weekend.
As you can see, Susie and Moe have a penchant for books. Oscar does, too, but not so much for reading them as chewing them up with his razor-sharp bunny teeth. But he's only doing what's natural for rabbits, and he's just so darn cute that I can't get mad at him. It was my fault, anyway, for having books on a shelf low enough for Oscar to reach. Nice bunny. Bad human. Poor The Red Tent. I liked you. But I digress. Back to introducing our new knitted bunny friends.
Susie and Moe have been neighbors since childhood. Moe's had a crush on Susie since forever, but he was never brave enough to do anything about it.
So Susie did. Moe realized there was no reason to be shy. It didn't take long for him to propose.
Susie said yes. And so many, many more little knitted bunnies are to come. The end.
*The bunnies are knitted with Lily Chin Greenwich Village on #7 needles, and I used pompoms for their tails.
