You may think all I have done for the past week is bake chocolate cakes, but I have been knitting too. For the knitters among you I'm sure it will not have escaped your notice that Julie has written up some patterns for her Little Cotton Rabbits... which are available here. And I just couldn't resist!
I was feeling quite pleased with this first attempt until Julie came along to join us for knitting and brunch on Friday morning and brought along her little rabbits to meet mine... and believe me mine looks like some monstrous half cousin by comparison! My rabbit's head is about twice the size of Julie's... that is Julie's rabbits' heads not Julie's head you understand.
I'm not sure my knitting and finishing will ever be up to the standard of Julie's and I was tempted to make another, hopefully smaller bunny head. But then I thought that my great niece who is only two months old will probably love this bunny anyway!
She was fun to knit and the pattern was so clearly written and easy to follow that I'm sure I'll be making more. It was also lovely to have Julie join us for knitting too.
Oh... and there has been more chocolate cake of course...
This one is a chocolate pecan fudge cake which is the most intensly chocolatey and moist cake so far. I think I might have my entry for next week's bake off sorted with just a bit of tweaking and the decoration to sort out!
