Hoppity the 2nd?

Somebody is about to hop into town

Somebody grey with brown eyes

Somebody who hopped right out of this book onto my knitting needles this past weekend

I'm only a stuffed leg and arm and a pom pom tail away before he/she (no gender yet!) appears on this 'ere blog 

ps. Alice has a bunny from when she was a toddler and she named it Hoppity. I am hoping she will come up with a name for this one otherwise it might just have to be Hoppity II  :o)


  1. Oooooh, I'm a bit partial to a knitted bunny!

  2. How about Hippity? Can't wait to see your little bunny!

  3. Hello Penelope! Looking forward to seeing Hoppity II!
    I loved your last post (which I have just read) with all the diamond Jubilee goodness in it, despite having a three day weekend for Queen's Birthday, there were not really celebrations in the town where I live so lovely to see what ishappening on the other side of the world! I loved the vintage-filled dome of HRH goodness too :O)
    Have a happy week XXX

  4. That looks like a nice book, I've been perusing the knitting books in our local library this afternoon, and there were plenty to choose from, but I came home with a kids quilts one, goodness knows why!

    Your bunny looks lovely, looking forward to seeing him/her how about floppity?

  5. Soft toys always get crazy names in our house - the most recent is a bear in a kilt named Douglas McHaggis Arthur!

  6. He/she is going to be adorable.
    Loved your Jubilee post (including the doggie doo-doo (!), not to mention Alice the style bunny's outfit :)

  7. Penelope, as you know I have a certain fondness for soft toys, in particular rabbits. You can imagine, therefore, how eager I am to meet 'Perhaps Hoppity II'!

    Do hurry and make him please. I will be waiting in the wings.

    Warmest wishes from soggy, windy (again) France.
