my parents were here visiting for the week and created a nice distraction. i also stayed home on friday and did a bit of knitting -
finally finished these up, which had been sitting in my WIP bag while i worked on snow white. i did a bit of pattern editing along the way and hope to have something posted soon.
i also started lisa daehlin's viennese shrug from the summer 2005 IK. jessica from fig and plum linked out to some beautiful photos of the back and i just fell in love. and honestly, lace knitting is what i need right now - something that requires serious concentration to keep my mind busy busy. i've only knit up an inch or so (in cotton fleece), but so far i'm loving it.
in the meantime, b and i have been trying to keep our spirits up. we booked a trip to europe in june - more on that soon - and have been working to socialize the other two bunnies into our lives.
as you can see, we rolled out the red carpet! both little b and cole have been reluctant to venture out of their cage, and b had the great idea of enticing them with an old yoga mat. it's worked wonders, and we're trying to spend some time every day sitting on the mat with them so they become more used to us. it's going to take time - they are both very skittish rabbits - but i'm confident that we can make this work.
oh, also! ! during the week we hit the 1000 bella's mittens mark on ravelry! you guys are awesome - i knew that there was a huge desire for these mittens, but honestly, i had no idea. 1000 mittens in four and a half months? you guys rock.
off to knit!
