~ SEEKING: SWEET KNITTED DOLLY / CHERCHE DOUDOU a TRICOTER ~

I have a soft spot for knitted dollies ( or as we call them in French : les Doudous Tricotes, et non, ce n'est pas la que je confesse dormir chaque nuit avec mon doudou tricote par ma Maman ). I bought this kit last week-end and love the "natural / homemade" look it has. It comes from the U.K ( another positive thing in my opinion ) and the box turns into a rocking chair for the "big bunny"( rather clever, I thought). You may have noticed the "8 + " sign on the box, well, after checking out the instructions, I'm not so sure an 8 year old would be able to pull it off but what about a 40 year old? Sure, I haven't knitted in 20 + years and have never had to follow the instructions in English but why not give it a try.
If you have spotted any cool "Doudous" out there waiting to be knitted, be sure to let me know.
THANK you for your comments.
