401 With Bunnies and Knitting

I just noticed this is my 401st post!  How time flies... Of course that isn't including my former blog from the child free, cheese making years hah.  

I have been trying to get some good pictures of the girls for a while now.  They usually don't get along very well when they have been out running around together but last night they were playing and laying down side by side.  They even snuggled!  Yay - maybe the tide has turned?  Rosie is the white one and Smokey is in gray.  They were shorn a couple of weeks ago so you can really see their big sparkly eyes.  They look so tiny now!  I have enough fiber collected that I really need to get started spinning.  Any drop spindle recommendations?

Rosie can get pretty bossy but Smokey seemed fine with it this time.  Willow has been a little frightened of them but as long as she was in my lap she didn't mind the occasional sniffs and happy jumps.

I am working on a tiny knitting project to serve both as an Easter present for Willow and a scrap buster for me.  It doesn't look like much now but it will be one of these little bunnies when I am done.

Most of the snow is gone now but I dug up these pictures from our last snow storm because I think they are so funny.  Eliot and Kevin built zombie snowmen to guard our house.  I ran into someone I didn't know who knew what house we were in because of these guys.  So funny.

 Equipped with all manor of gadgets.

And of course I had to toss in a baby picture.  She is crawling forward now (another Kevin video) and she said both Mama and Dada yesterday!  So cute.

Yarning along over here.

I love seeing your bunnies! They are beautiful and must be so fun to cuddle!!!! We have a girl at Knit club that brings in fiber from her angoras and spins it with a drop spindle. The softest thing I have ever felt!!!

I love that little knitted bunny! Have just pinned the pattern for future reference.

I recommend the book Respect the Spindle. Good read and lots of info on different spindles and the whys.
