WELCOME to our 2nd workshop with our wonderful Gypsy cream who has designed another special animal for our workshop. His name is boris the bunny and he is so beautiful
.I am the lucky recipient of one of the very first Boris the BunnIies and I thank you Pat for this wonderful gift. He is sitting in our living room and is master of all he surveys. Thanks again friend
I am so pleased to offer this workshop as it has been asked for many times. Many thanks to my friend Gypsy cream for doing her 2nd special workshop for this section. We are very honored to have her design this wonderful bunny and we are looking forward to hosting this class where she will teach the very special bunny which she designed especially for this workshop!!
See the link to the Designer's pattern shop below. Go there and you can find the information to buy your pattern. Pat has given us a special price for the pattern for Boris.
Please when you enter the workshop here, post 'I'm In' and I will add you to the count. I will remove your post once you are included . I will post the number of students each day and I ask you to please follow this request.
WELCOME GYPSY CREAM! you are welcome to post here when you are ready. Shirley (Designer1234)
WORKSHOPS - how we work and what is expected of the students.First of all,when you reach the workshop (you are here now) please post 'I'm In
' so that I can count you for our records and information.I will count you in and then will remove that post. So if you disappear, it means I have you marked down as a student and so you can just stay here until the Workshop starts.
ALL OUR WORKSHOPS ARE TAUGHT TO KP MEMBERS BY KP MEMBERS. There is no charge for the class. We have 59 closed workshops which will remain on the workshop section for the use of all KP members. We ask that you keep the info on KP. If someone wants to read any of the information, we suggest they join KP> However we have no control over this. The closed workshops are set up so that no questions can be asked as it is closed. However, most of our teachers are quite willing to help at a later date by answering questions AS LONG as the question is not already answered.
The information as to how to obtain the pattern will be posted below this information.
We ask that you follow the methods being taught by the teacher. There are many ways to do different techniques and it is discouraging and confusing if someone interrupts with a different method. Sooo - if you wish to offer suggestions or information, please pm the teacher and she will decide whether it adds to the class. Don't post information. The class is taught the method used by the teacher and we want to avoid confusion.
Once again, we are very pleased that GypsyCream is using the workshops as an organized way to teach her wonderful Boris the Bunny.
Once again, Welcome!!Here is the link to the Designers Pattern Shoppe where Gypsy cream has posted where to find the pattern, and other information.
so everyone, make sure you have your pattern and pass the word around. Due to the time difference between the UK and Vancouver Island on the Pacific coast of Canada, we will run into different time zones.
So; post your questions when you are in the workshop and Gypsy cream will answer when she is available. Wait for the answer she will get to it as soon as she is awake, and carry on with the questions and answers. These classes are so much fun -- enjoy!!
lop eared Boris - He is sitting in my living room!! yeay!
standing up ears for this boris. He is beautiful
I can't do the pattern as we are going on vacation, but will be following along. Love Gypsycreams patterns.
Thanks Designer for all that you do.
Thank you for the lovely opening Designer1234 and thank you for inviting me to host another workshop.
Welcome to the Boris the Bunny workshop everyone. I hope we have as much fun as we did for the Panda workshop last year.
If you haven't already started you bunny it is best to start with the left leg for the legs/body piece, don't be tempted to start with the right or you will confuse me!!!
Please remember this isn't a race to the end, creating a bunny should be enjoyable, watching the parts grow and take shape as you knit. We all knit at a difference space, some have more time to knit than others, so don't worry that you can't keep up, we'll wait for you, promise.
I'm knitting along with you and when it comes to stuffing and assembling I'll take extra photos to those already included in the making up guide and add a few extra tips to help you create a sweet Boris. I'm making a special one for my granddaughter, Poppy, for her first Easter present, as she'll not be getting chocolate this year :)
Please ask any questions on this thread, you never know someone else may have the same query and it will help them, and I'll get back to you as soon as I see your question or comment.
If we all smile sweetly at MzBarnz/Donna, she may put together a silent Bunny Hop at the end of the workshop so we can admire all the bunnies :D
Lets have some fun and create a lovely Boris the Bunny!!
You know I love you Donna, don't you. But we'll understand if those girls of yours take over all your time. Maybe they could round up the Bunnies for us.
What is nice this time, is all the new names, alongside 'regulars'. That's wonderful.
.................Thanks to everyone who has worked so hard to get this organized. I know it takes a lot of effort on the teacher's part, but there are also people behind the scenes getting it all perfect for our class! Thanks to Karen and Chris for helping Gypsycream with the knitting tests especially.
I've just finished my ironing (pat on the back) so now I'm going to have a couple of hours with the first leg :)
Hope you are all starting and enjoying Boris :D
Well the1st leg is done :D
But it's not a good day for me today for knitting or crocheting as my left arm wont hold any thing without thinking it weighs a ton, so thats me done for today hopefully I will get some more done tomorrow. I've got pinched nerves in the neck (spinal column) and today its affecting both arms but the left a lot more. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. :roll:
Thanks for offering this class. New great-granddaughter due mid-April. Special friend for her!!
So excited first time I've done a class. I got a head start on my Boris. He's looking pretty Spring-ish! Love that tubby tummy! Thanks Pat for doing this class!
Got my bunny started! Love that you're doing the workshop, Pat. It's so fun to see so many people making the same pattern and how different they turn out with their own personalities. This is going to be FUN!
I've received some gorgeous smiles from those who would like to see all the bunnies together, so... of course I will start a "Bunny Hop" thread when the pics start rolling in! Please make it easy for me to find your bunny by typing the key words "Boris" or "bunny" or something indicating it's a Gypsycream creation in your subject title. You can even pm me just a quick note letting me know you've posted your pic. I surely don't want to miss any of these adorable little creatures!!
Let's get these bunnies started!
I already have the pattrrn & will get my yarn. Can you explain how these work? This is my first one. Thank you.
Welcome Knittinginma :) I'm not sure how most workshop work, on mine we just knit along together and post any questions or advise on this thread.
I'm knitting a bunny too and I'll take more detailed photos when it comes to sewing and stuffing to help you all. Other than that just keep reading this thread, you may pick up some tips along the way. At the end post your finished bunny and MzBarnz is going to collect them all and put onto one thread so everyone can admire them :)
ohhh so anxious to start but not before tomorrow I have to finish a baby hat first, I love this bunny can't decide if I want ears up or down lol thanks Pat
You will find its such a quick knit you can do both ;)
and excited! I'm gong to be making this bunny for my little granddaughter( first and only one) for Easter. She's 2mon. old .
