Hunny Bunny....

Bob, Louise, Roger, Dave (DH)
Well we are half way through the week and it feels like Monday. It was great to finally have some time with DH as he had a nice four day holiday. We did some visiting with his parents and his older brother and sister in-law on Sunday. The two hour drive is always a nice time for us just to chat and for me to get in some knitting. Thank the heavenly saints that knitting in the car doesn't make me motion sick like reading does. The trip home always happens in the dark, so I get to do a little star gazing, which is always nice. Since we're far from the city driving through farmland, the stars truly twinkle.

I have been wondering what to do for product for my Tiny Tots line in the Green Girl World for several months. I love making things for children and I didn't want them cut out of the Green Girl experience. Lately, I have been knitting with cotton for my dishcloth swap. This gave me an idea to start playing around with something that the wee ones might like and that would be easy for moms to clean. And so the Hunny Bunny was born. Hunny Bunny is basically a cotton cloth made in one piece to resemble a bunny. It can be loved, used in the bath or even used as a teething cloth (I've found that babies like to nubs of the garter stitch on their gums when they are teething.) Hunny Bunny will come in six colors - pink, purple, green, yellow, blue and natural. I'll be posting some in my Etsy shop in a few days, but I'm going to try and make a great quantity for the holiday craft sale that I am going to participate in this year. I think these are great for adding to a stocking, a baby shower gift, etc....

I can see now that the rest of the summer is going to be very busy. I have a commissioned project to work on as soon as the yarn order arrives, plus I have one new pre-made scarf to add to the collection (it just has to be made) and three patterns to create for the collection.  As they say, "No rest for the wicked."

Well, that's the latest,
Peace and joy to you all.....
The Green Girl.
