More Knitting Goodness and Some Cuteness to Boot

In my last post, I shared with you the overwhelming cuteness of the baby bunnies living in my backyard. To continue that theme, here's a project by Debbie that not only shows off her lovely knitting work, but also provides another dose of overwhelming cuteness in the form of her model:

Debbie knit this hat, along with a pair of matching mittens, using FF Heavy Worsted Merino Wool in the Antique Rose colorway:

The pattern is of Debbie's own design. Isn't it great?! You can pop over to Ravelry and find her as "DebbieO" to see more of her work. And when I say more, I mean MORE! Debbie has an amazing number of projects in Ravelry that run the full spectrum of types. The number of intricate cabled sweaters alone is rather staggering. Have a look for yourself. I kid you not!

Next up are these socks knit by Linda Jo using FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Sublime colorway:

Although at first glance these are a simple and straightforward pair of socks, Linda Jo used a few interesting sock techniques including a Twisted German caston, an Eye of Partridge Heel, and added reinforcement thread in the heel and toe.

Beautiful socks! But we still need to add that shot of cuteness to keep with the theme today, so here you go:

You can see more of Linda Jo's work on her blog and also on Ravelry as "BeadKnitter."

A big Thank You to Debbie and Linda Jo for sharing their work!

Let's hear it for cute! Great photos. I especially like the "Sublime" socks, which knit up in an unusually attractive color sequence.
