Vintage bunny

A friend of Bean's is having a baby, and wanted a bunny toy like the ones she's been knitting, so I was asked to step in and help with bunny prouduction. Nice project, the vintage toys are well constructed, pattern-wise, enjoyed doing this in a day or so. Might do some more!

Hugh's jumper

I was commissioned to knit a jumper in the style of the one that Hugh FW has been wearing recently in his TV series

This is the one, you can see the top of it here - a plain sleeveless jumper, but knitted in beautiful wool, possibly dyed with natural dyes - it has that air about it and I love it.
This is my version, soon to be en route to my customer:

Worked in Manx Loughtan wool, produced organically here in Dorset, just up the raod from me. I used a truly vintage pattern, and am delighted, and I think it will become one of my standby patterns and get a lot of use - very versatile, lending itself ot all sorts of variations, colour and pattern wise.
