Week 5: Knitted bunny

This week I'd planned on completing a leatherwork project. I have the pieces cut out, I just need to punch some holes, do some basic stamping, and lace them up. Seems simple.

Except I have mild inflammatory arthritis, and I'd forgotten that my hands hate the leather punch with the fire of a thousand suns. REALLY hate it. I need to put it down after 2-3 holes to let the swelling go down and the pain ease. I don't even usually get much swelling.

So, I whipped up a little bunny from handspun alpaca to put aside for Easter. I used this pattern  and failed to do it justice.
