You may remember that I decided to knit Ysolda's Sophie as an Easter gift for my daughter Nina. The pattern was challenging at times but I was very happy with the outcome. Unfortunately there were a couple of problems: firstly, between Mum and I we had knit 2 Sophies, but between my sister and I there are 3 children (that's right, one of had to knit another one). Secondly, when Nina saw the grey Sophie that I was making she said to me "I want a pink one!". The solution to both problems was obvious, I had to knit a second Sophie in pink. I hate knitting the same project twice, but the second one did knit up a bit easier (though not much quicker) than the first. Knitting to the last second, I finished Nina's Sophie the night before Easter.
Mr Easter Bunny - a gift for my nephew Xavier.
I added a tail to both bunnies (a bunny's gotta have a tail!). The first tail was added at a slightly lower point than the second - it looks a little too low but in this position it works well to keep the bunny upright when sitting (tripod effect).
