FO: Wild Rabbit

Knitting this wild rabbit was fun. Claire Garland has other realistic looking knit animals that I look forward to tackling soon, specifically the a deer/fawn and cat. 

I found these animal eyes at Hobby Lobby, which makes the rabbit look even more realistic.

Project Notes:
Wild Rabbit by Claire Garland

US 6 - 4.0 mm

1.8 skeins = 255.6 yards (233.7 meters), 90 grams
1.8 skeins = 486.0 yards (444.4 meters), 180 grams
0.48 skeins = 129.6 yards (118.5 meters), 48 grams
1 skein = 135.0 yards (123.4 meters), 85 grams
Colorway130 Rose
Yarn Bee Tender Touch
1 skein = 135.0 yards (123.4 meters), 85 grams

It was really neat witnessing the clever construction of the animal while knitting it. Claire Garland really has created something special because she has an eye for detail.

I added whiskers using flexible beading wire. It wasn't in the instructions, but I felt like he/she needed some to look complete.
