New yummy yarn and a bunny

My younger sister and I are so much alike, and yet oh so different, take for instance knitting, while we both knit she prefers really bulky yarn, the thicker the better, I think if she had her way she would knit with rope if she could, she likes her knitting to grow fast! I on the other hand like really fine yarn, the thinner the better. That is why I was so thrilled the other day when my yarn order turned up in the mail, it is such whisper thin mohair and it is as light as a feather, I was so giddy with excitement that I just had to knit something....
...this little sweater made for a new little bunny is so incredibly soft and light that when it is in your hands and if you close your eyes you feel nothing, I can hardly wait to get my hands on the rest of it.This is Rosie, and as you can probably guess she loves gardening almost as much as me, unfortunately she will have to wait a while before going outside, we had so much rain the last few days that the garden has turned into a bog and I would hate for her to get her lovely pink outfit all muddy!

Rosie's little outfit is so cute - best not to get it messy indeed. The yarn is heavenly and the colours are so soft and pretty, it must be such a joy to knit with.
