Cute Dog & Rabbit

Just thought I'd show these little knitted toys. They are knitted in Sirdar baby crofters. It's a lovely soft wool and knits up like a fair isle pattern so no need to keep changing balls of wool. I knitted the dog for a friend for her great grandson and the rabbit was for charity. It was on the counter in the store where I work and people paid £1 and chose a  name, it was very popular and raised over £50 for Save the Children. The toys are safe from birth as there are no loose items, the eyes are done using black wool and a darning needle rather sewing a button on. They are machine washable but not to be dried in the dryer, room temperature only. I've had these makes shown in Let's Knit and Knit Now and I was quite proud to see my name in print.
