fluff

Yesterday we spent a delightful sunny springtime morning with the Woolybuns angora rabbits who will be the topic of Leah's second Spindlicity article. Chris answered all our questions, let us watch the shearing process and snuggle with her oh-so-soft babies, and sent us on our merry way with a big bag of spinnable angora fluff (blended with shetland wool) that's indescribably soft. Leah and Scott are both looking forward to spinning it up and knitting it into something -- Leah says a scarf and Scott says a liner for his winter hat -- maybe both! Jesse got to carefully snuggle one of the littlest babies, only a couple of weeks old, and then decided he was just as happy romping with Chris' dog, whose boundless energy was a good match for an 11-year-old boy. The forsythia surrounding Chris' yard are on the verge of blooming and we had fun peering at the woods along the highway to spot the teensiest traces of buds on the trees, while listening to a book on cd about Australian Aborigines.

Kids then headed off for a sleepover with friends. I'm not sure who was more excited -- us or them! ;-) Scott spent the evening melting glass and I relaxed with my knitting, in between bronchitic coughing spells and sniffles. Posted by Picasa
