New bunnies!

Yes, I did!  I went and got some fine looking bunnies!  I actually drove to the Syracuse New York area. There was a rabbit show in Fulton. Both former owners are from the Vermont area, so I was glad that we could rendezvous at the rabbit show. One bunny is a red, the other a fawn agouti. Both are totally delightful... pet me, hold me, pet me! 

On the way back I brought the bunnies into the hotel room with me. I kept them in their cages, but opened up the top, so they could sit comfortably. They settled down right away, eating and drinking and staring at me!  What good bunnies.

I will be getting hutches for them, but until then they will be in the old cages I had. They are in the garage for now, check it out:

This is Floppsie
This is Rosie
Life is good with bunnies back in my life!

Small projects...

After a big project like the last one, I like to shake it up, both in type of knitting and size of the project.
I found some lovely roving on the Fyberspates website. It's wool/silk/nylon/silver. Think socks. I wasn't thinking socks, but the lovely shawl pattern "Aeolian" from the Knitty. The roving was called Sea Mist, a perfect name for the shawl.

Now all 14 oz are spun up; waiting for inspiration before I start knitting...

Here is more knitting candy. A silly little scarf knit with Malabrigo Lace.

Yet more knitting candy.

I like knitting candy. This is a pattern from "Stahman's Shawls & Scarves" called the Walter Seaman's Scarf. This could be a Christmas present...
Lovely yarn candy... the pattern is from the Knitty called Kernal.
