Bunny sitter?

Oscar thinks that he is keeping a close eye on the nest box that I store in the cat condo. He volunteers to bunny sit.

In reality I keep the baby bunnies in a cookie tin lined with a cloth and stuffed with angora clippings when not being fed by Mila.  I then put the tin in a rabbit carrying cage INSIDE a larger rabbit cage.  Locked.  Nice try, Oscar.

Puffy baby blanket made with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn

I recently discovered a fun new yarn that appealed to me because it looked like it would work up quick.  My short attention span does not allow for long, tedious projects so this (VERY) chunky yarn, otherwise known at Bernat Baby Blanket yarn, had my name written all over it.  I found a pattern on line that was specific to this yarn with a youtube video to go with it to help out my less sharp crocheting skills.  I finished it in a week which was longer than it should have due to work, life, etc.

Here is the link to the written instructions

Here is the link to the helpful youtube video

This blanket required two, 10.5 ounce skeins of yarn and a size P crochet hook or whatever size suites your gauge. Since I crochet loosely I used a size N.  It's still huge!

Finished product, 29 inches by 32 inches.

A friend described this photo as lovely.  I think it describes the sentiment perfectly when I look at this picture.

Milk bellies

Its always such a relief to see bellies full of milk on a new litter.  Its a sign that everything is going in the right direction.
