Monday Mario

Months and months ago I saw this post from our friends over the pond. I am a pretty sad knitter but I enlisted one of my friends to help me figure out the pattern. I've been practicing for a while now and finally got around to knitting Rabbits Guy his consolation prize sock bunny.

I decided to try to make a little Racer sock bunny. Here is our subject:


Mario quickly befriended the sock bunny for some cuddling.


This was the first time I ever used two different colors of yarn. His nose ended up being rather large, but RG, if you pinch his face just right and turn down the ears when he arrives he's a nice little Racer wannabe!

I am not a great knitter, but it is a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to doing other projects! I am currently working on a shawl/scarf thing for my mom and sister for Christmas and other knit bunnies to give to relatives as ornaments.

Mario helped me stuff the sock bunny in an envelope to send to RG when the sock bunny tried to hitch a ride on Mario to the hay wagon.


Not to hijack a "Monday Mario" post, but I have been running and will start updating the blog on that front soon! I have lots of running related posts I want to do and even another giveaway that is long overdue!

I'm sure both Racer and Rabbits Guy will be delighted - its a lovely sock bunny, very cute and couldn't be anybun other than Racer...

And another knitter is born, or re-born as the case maybe. The white nose may be a bit large OTOH it is Racer's identifying mark so artistically I think it's OK to exaggerate.

I've tried knitting before and was lucky not to poke my eyes out with the needles. That sock bunny looks GREAT to me, very cute!

O. M. G. We are SO delinquent in making the blog rounds! It came! Today (wednesday)! It is perfect .. Racer is ecstatic - his nose glowed twice as big as the knit-bunny's! Oh Oh Oh ... Thank you Thank you Thank you ....
