I saw this pattern for a giant arm knitted bunny by Flax & Twine and decided to give it a try. (Which is slightly amusing because I do not know how to knit) .
So I let A help pick out the yarn. And of course she chose a blue. So after practicing for a bit, I think I kind of got the hang of it.
It went pretty quick. I made the body part one night. Then the head the next. A couple nights later I had the opportunity to assemble the bunny. Once again, I was not 100% sure what to do, but I gave it a go. I am happy how it turned out! Now let’s see what A & S have to say in the morning. 🙂
Update: The “big bunny” was a hit this morning!
Today we got another large cardboard box. (Thank you Ann!) Oh, the possibilities are endless ! After letting the kids play with it as a tunnel, we got to work creating our newest creation…. rocket ship!
This one even has some control panels inside! Oh what a hit with all!

A came to me tonight & said she was sad because she did not have anything to give me & Papa for Valentines Day. So I grabbed some construction paper, few stickers, crayons, & let them go.
It is nights like tonight that make me proud. First, A wanted to do something nice for others without any prompting, and second, she helped S and made sure he had all of the things he needed.
