More Bunny!

Well, yesterday it was 43 f, and rainy. Lovely weather for January in Michigan. The snow was gone, and I was happy!! This morning it is negative 1 f, lots of ice and snow, and it's a snow day. Even Hubby stayed home from work because the roads were so bad. I don't even want to know what the wind chill factor is. It's cold!!
I have been knitting, though. I finished the second pinwheel blanket, booties, and hat, I just have to finish the last icord tie for the booties, and maybe embroider some flowers on the blankie.
I also started a bunny from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. It is going to be for the baby I knitted the purple striped pinwheel blanket for. Her first birthday is coming up. The inner ears are going to be knit out of real bunny wool. I still have to spin it, though. lol. The roving is in the picture by the bunny's head. Carrie gave it to me, and I will return whatever I don't use, because it is some special stuff!!Nope it's all gone. :)
And I made a garterlac dishcloth with the striping cotton from Lily's Sugar and Cream. I love the way the stripes went into the little squares. I got some more of the cotton just to knit some more of these.
Ok, LD has to use the computer to go here. Fun site. Time sucker, though. :) Then she also has a school project to research on the computer, so I guess I'll get out of the way!
Be back soon with my 200th post! It'll be a contest, so stay tuned!!
p.s. if you want to see some pics from the fun spinning class Carrie and I did, she has some posted here.

The Garterlac Cloth is really neat. I'm going to have to try that one.

I can't wait to see the finished bunny. I bed it's going to be adorable.

This winter is so bizarre! Hot one second below freezing the next.. Positively weird.

Put that bunny together! I'm glad the roving was helpful =) The baby will love feeling it, I'm sure. What a lucky little girl to get real bunny in the ears of her bunny! I lurv the garterlac dishcloth, too. I was just thinking of that pattern yesterday...
