Anybody looking for a rabbit?
A friend of a friend found him wandering around her driveway. He was caught, the house that they thought he came from was approached, and they admitted to letting him go just because they didn't want him anymore. (who thinks an angora will be okay on it's own. Especially in Sacramento in July???) I said I'd take him because I had an extra cage, but I'm not sure if I have time to groom one more bunny. He's a satin angora, he's small now but I'm not sure if that's due to neglect, or if he's simply young. I also need to attack his coat, and I'll probably just chop it all off.

In other news, more scarves on and off the loom- I was playing with a pattern and tried it out in several different color combinations. By the last one it's evident that I was getting tired of it! Here is a picture before that last one was off the loom.
Handwoven scarves The warp on all of them is Webs merino/tencel yarn, and the weft is various heavy fingering weight yarns, some are bamboo/merino/nylon, one is merino/tencel, and one is some cotton/wool/nylon sock yarn that I had a single skein of sitting around.

What an adorable rabbit!! I would take him, but since I live in New Mexico, and you live in California, it would be a bit difficult getting him! He is cute, though! :)

Beautiful scarves!! I would love to do some weaving. I wove a scarf on a small hand loom, but, as of yet, have not tried it on a bigger loom. My Nana has one, though, and she is going to teach me to use it. :D With the merino, do you get softer scarves? It sounds like a soft kind of fiber, but I am no expert. ;)

Nice blog too and I love your name 'Tigger'!!
