I had a grooming morning with Shamu the Bunneh...He put up with everything but trimming the last few toenails. *sigh.* But Matt got a few great pictures during and after...IMG_20130921_112234_522

Hi guys...been a while. Again. Heh. I keep being pulled away by all the other social media stuff. Which makes me kind of sad, because while it's clunky, there's much more running-room on LJ. Meh.

Anyway, it's getting to be the time of year when other knitters start loading up on yarns for autumn, so my too-quiet Etsy shop now has some requests for custom stuff. It's a relief. A lady out of the blue started emailing me because a coworker told her I buy fiber, and she has 17 alpacas she just sheared. 17! And my coworker's farmer side of the family keeps brushing their yaks and saving all the soft, fluffy stuff for me. If only I had more hands; if only I had more time!

So of course when I'm walking around the Mines, I dream of a workspace to process all this fiber. Maybe even investing in a small wool-mill, because there's only so much a drum-carder can do. So many local farmers pop up in my email, looking for someone, anyone to buy their wool and make something great with it. It's tempting to offer fiber-tutoring for some of the farmers, who love their beasties but have no idea what fiber people look for when they buy wool. I could teach them how to prep the stuff, find a mill or a spinner's group, all that sort of thing. Wouldn't hurt, might help...

Ah heck, I should just join the Textile Center. I keep meaning to. Bad Maus.

Meanwhile, yesterday was Shamu the Bunneh's birthday, but I was working all day...so here's a belated bunneh picture for you!2, Shamu 005

Shamu the Bunneh is starting his power-shedding again. But he's always a pretty happy little guy, for all his poofiness...

To celebrate the slow but definitely coming spring I give you another photo in the Rabbits in Hats series...



Of course, you can see that instead of Shamu wearing the hat, he is investigating one of mine. That's because I kept trying to put a small tinfoil hat on his little head, and he wasn't having any of it. He preferred to boss around one of my larger hats, so this is what we're stuck with...

I should do all kinds of productive things, but since this is my personal Saturday, I may just lie on the couch with some knitting. I can also watch Shamu the Bunny romp around my feet. I love that...

The friendly shores of Weekend are upon me. Bliss...

I really could have used a bit more sleep. But Shamu the Bunneh kept on going, "Hey! Hey Hyoomin!
Wake up! I wanna come out! I want you to bring me lettuce and stuff! And pet me! Pet me pet me pet meeee! Hey, Hyoomin! Hey! HEY!!"

So of course I did all those things. Lucky little rabbit...

I should have put a green shamrock hat on Shamu or something...but what the hey, rabbit pictures are always seasonally appropriate, am I right?



Here he's on a red pouf, disapproving of my dark, shoddy photography:



And here is the skein I spun with Fleur's help the other night. Isn't it a sparkly thing?
