4 weeks old

Chocolate tort boy his first trip outside. 

REW doe.  Pretty eyes.

Who doesn't love fuzzy bunny butts?

A meeting of the minds;)

Black tort buck is the first to figure everything out.  He says, "Hay feeders?  Genius!"

"I'm KING of the nestbox!"

New mittens

What winter (such that it is) would be complete if I didn't knit a pair of black English Angora mittens?  Love, love, love the color black in angora.  Never shows the dirt.  Fiber donated by Sweet Pea.

I didn't really like how I spun this hank of yarn as I think it was the first one I plied on my majicraft wheel before I realized I had to reverse the tension.  It's funny how it doesn't really matter, though, once you knit the yarn.

Donny's yarn

Finally finished spinning Donny's show coat.  I spun 325 yards of sport weight/worsted weight from his show coat.  The picture doesn't do it justice, it is a buttery off-white.  Delicious!

Last Friday the buns opened their eyes.  A shot of the four of them exploring their new world.

Rabbit manure

If there is one thing rabbits are good at it is producing plenty of droppings.  I received a request from someone looking to fuel their garden with rabbit droppings for which I was happy to accomodate them.  As much as I would like to garden in the summer time my work schedule is way too busy so I was very happy to share.  Perhaps I will get to taste the fruits of her labor, looking forward to it!

Garbage bags full of bunny power.

RED baby booties

Several weeks ago someone requested a pair of red angora baby booties to give to an Asian co-worker expecting a baby.  Red symbolizes good luck in China.  I sent the first pair which the buyer was happy with but he wanted to know if I could step it up a notch and make RED baby booties. 

These certainly are red.  This baby is going to have some lucky feet!
