I move between two addictions (and no, we’re not getting into my Grey’s Anatomy & Private Practice addiction here! ). On one side, there’s my dollmaking, on the other, my bunnies. They’re forever battling it out. Currently, the bunnies are on the winning hand. I’ve got a custom order for two small bunnies, one of them similar to Hugo here, but with embroidered eyes and dark ears, and needles are sticking every which way! I have recently started making the bunnies on double pointed needles, so I won’t have as much finishing to do in the end. Better, much better!
I’m also looking into new yarn for my white bunnies, as those seem to be the most popular, and I ran out of the yarn I used to knit them from. What do you know, of course it’s a discontinued yarn! I have high hopes though I’ll be able to find a replacement from Textere Yarns, a UK company. They’ve got the best collection of pure dyeable yarn I have ever seen! So many different textures… quite unbelievable. I’m quite into UK yarns anyhow – the yarn for my smaller bunnies comes from New Lanark, an historic yarn mill based in Scotland.
I know it’s not very practical, ordering more yarn a few months before moving into our new house, but I just couldn’t stop myself.
