Baby Bunnies Are Such Fun !

A quick post so you can see how cute the little buns are.

Considering just over two weeks ago they started out like this.

...and then they got fur.

And started to look like bunnies.

Now they are up for visiting. (Note the blue hands from wool dyeing).

And already we have an avid motorcyclist in our midst.

That's Beady, the only one we've named so far.

I Love Days At Home

Here are some of the things I got to do.

I washed the second half of Kirby's fleece. Here it is soaking in very hot water and Dawn dishsoap.

I made a CD spindle with the grommets Simon and I went EVERYWHERE, (in Powell River, that is) to find. I had some of those CD labels so I made a spirograph design on it. It spins nicely and looks psychedelic too. How cool is that ?

I got to hold this 6 day old kit. It's hard to get the best shot one handed but you get the idea.

And here is one of the light coloured kits. They have fur now.

I experimented making headscarves on my knitting machine.

Here is the headscarf and Kirby's 1/2 fleece outside drying in the sun.

And this is the second scarf I made. I changed how I worked the decreases so it is a bit shorter, which is better. I made it with some recyled ribbon yarn.

So that was my day !
