Up until a couple of months ago, I had never heard of Julie’s Little Cotton Rabbits . . til one evening I was reading Sheri’s blog and . . they they were . . ready to hop right into my brain and never leave. This fiddly small stuff that requires counting and shaping and stuffing is not something I would ever have imagined myself wanting to do.

But, since there’s a certain little girl in MO that I never stop thinking about, I believe she needs some of these critters. Not now . . she’s still at the stage where she puts everything in her mouth . . but in a couple of years, I could see her enjoying having a rabbit or two and maybe a fox, and some clothes for them. If I get started now, I should have a nice little package for her by the time she’s ready for them.
As a young girl, I loved playing with paper dolls .. dressing and changing their clothes. As an older girl, I loved playing with Barbie .. all the clothes and shoes. I can just see Addie playing with these rabbits. Of course, they’ll need lots of dresses for changing their clothes.
And now there’s a fox! There’s a girl fox and a boy fox, as well as a girl rabbit and a boy rabbit. Are these the cutest things ever? The patterns can be purchased through Ravelry. I’m pretty sure I’m going to need at least the boy rabbit pattern too. I’m also pretty sure that if I finish my current knitting project before digging through my yarn to try to find something that would work for these critters, I will surprise myself.
Maybe our next “knit along” will include rabbits and foxes!
