Okay..... Break over.

My rabbit is now a happy member of my family, although he did not enjoy getting his first haircut.  There was lots of squirming and kicking involved.  I had lots of scratches.  I am still working on him being willing to lay on his side or back without freaking out.  He is getting much better.  He has a snobby attitude and is a bit bossy.  He has been deemed Admiral Twist.
 I also added some new things to my Etsy Shop!  There is a scarf and a shawl.  Both are handwoven.  New patterns coming soon.  I can't publish my most recent pattern because it is meant to look like Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon, and Dreamworks told me no.  Pretty sure I am allowed to offer it for free though.  If so, I'll put the link up on Ravelry.
I also started spinning the hair from the first bunny haircut!  Not sure what I'll make out if it yet.  I am blending it with wool.  The picture is the single of Angora and wool on the spindle, and a cop of plain wool on a needle.  The two are destined to be plied together as a two ply yarn.  I am thinking of doing the Wisp out of it, if I have enough, or maybe a scarf with a similar stitch pattern.
I just finished weaving some hand towels for my bathroom.  I had to seam them by hand, no sewing machine, so it took forever to do the hems.  But, they look pretty snazzy for the fact that sewing is not really my thing.
I am almost done test knitting a pattern for some quick to knit slippers as well.  I have the first slipper done.  I will list the pattern on Ravelry and Etsy as soon as its ready.  More patterns are coming soon!  All in all, I have been a busy beaver lately, so I didn't get to blogging much.  Thanks for reading!
