I read about this book and pattern on a knitting forum. Milo Armadillo is a sweet story about a little girl who wants a fluffy pink rabbit. Her parents can't find one so grandma begins knitting one, but her pattern goes awry and Milo is the result. The girl is polite but disappointed. Everyone else has a pink rabbit. Milo shows her what he can do, but she always says that a rabbit would be faster, smarter, cuter etc. Milo decides to go to grandma's to be unraveled and re-knit into a bunny. The girl comes home from school and is heartbroken to see he has disappeared. She follows the yarn trail because now she doesn't want a rabbit, she wants her Milo back. Grandma repairs his tail and all is well again.
I downloaded the pattern and knit my own Milo. I will eventually read this to Colton, but right now he is little young to appreciate the story and he'd probably want to chew on Milo and I'm not ready for that. Milo has to go the yarn shop first.
