Hoppy Easter from Sophie and the Bunny Nuggets

by Aimee on April 4, 2010

I have the pleasure of having a new baby niece! Her name is Sloane and she is adorable! I am very much in love with her even though I won’t meet her for another 6 weeks or so when I go visit her and her mommy – my bestie, Danielle, my sister in my heart.

For her first Easter, I knit for Sloane, her new baby cousin Presley and her older, wiser, 16 year old cousin, Presley’s sister, Abbie.

Sophie and The Bunny Nuggest

Sophie by Ysolda Teague
Bunny Nuggets by Rebecca Danger
Yarn: Lambs Pride Cotton Fleece
Needles: US #3
Notions: polyfil, embroidery floss, plastic eggs, ribbon, pompoms

These were a fast and easy knit. Each nugget took me an hour start to finish including the faces and all. they have little pom pom tails, which I cheated and bought instead of making as the pattern says. I am lazy, what can I say? Sophie was a joy to knit. And as a bonus, she and Sloane are BFFs! Sophie had a ribbon on her ear, but Sloane loves Sophie so much, Danielle wisely took the ribbon off to keep it out of baby’s mouth! The eyes, btw, are french knots, so nothing to choke baby (and I did part of the mouth, both eyes and then the rest of the mouth, then anchored the hell out of it to keep them from coming out.

thanks to D who took the pics – bc I forgot! If I had asked her for permission I would have posted a pic of Sloane with Sophie, but I didn’t and while I have her permission to post other pics that I have of her, I don’t want to go posting baby pics all over the place! :)
