Last but not least
I am feeling a bit giddy this week because we have almost finished the photo shoot for Vintage Knits for Modern Babies and I have handed in my manuscript including 25 knitting patterns - including a Layette Set, Organic Heirloom Blanket, Matinee Jacket, Ruby Slippers, Modern Baby Bonnet, Double Breasted Car Coat, Petite Beret, Charming Sweater, Cable Boots, Wavy Cashmere Blanket, Nana's Bunnies, Birdy Cardigan, Pixie Cap, Wee Mittens, Anya's Cardigan, Ballet Blossom Cardigan, Lavender Sachet, Baby Clothes Hangers, Hooded Capelet and last but not least...the Bunny Mobile. PHEW!
Early on in the concept stage, someone at the publisher said they would like to see a baby mobile in the book. 12 months ago this sounded like a fun idea so I made some sketches and kept putting it off until finally everything was completed except the blasted mobile. Well, after 20 hours of toil, my bunny mobile is complete and off to the Photographer in California. It was way more fun to make than I thought and as I was making it, I realized that there are so many ways you could take this pattern different. In the end, I wanted to keep it simple and this was the result.
