I know this must be a dumb question, but what weight yarn did you use? Fingering?

Those are so cute! I bought the yarn (Plymouth Encore) to make some for Easter, for both decorations and for my special needs son. They will be very much enjoyed by all, as they brighten things up for Spring. I can't wait to start them! Thank you so much for the darling pattern!

I just wanted to let you know I just finished making these cute little guys. I made 13 of them to give to my daughters preschool class. I am putting them on top of some chocolate eggs. Thanks for the great pattern. I hope I did it justice.

Thanks for the great pattern. I'm getting ready to knit it right now.

I just made these, but altered the pattern, for my sons birthday party. I am doing a ducky theme so I did them in yellow and added a short row bill. I am going to knit a bunch to send send home as part favors. Thanks so much for the inspiration. It has been fun.

I just loved the bunnies, but as a Portuguese speaker, with a little English, I don't know what a "TOG" is in kinitting. Can you explain it to me?
Congratulations for your blog, and thank you!

TOG means knit together - hope that helps! I'm halfway through knitting my first one of these - think it'll b every cute!
