what do i do when i’m not making jewelry, you ask?

well, there are many things i COULD be doing (many of my endeavors leave my hands dirty or sore or maimed), but lately, i choose to knit. mostly because it is relaxing (for the most part), and there is almost always something wonderful as the end result. right now, i have picked back up my bunny knitting. if you are a Facebook friend, you have tons of adorable knit bunnies peppering your feed when i am actually knitting for any length of time. as to what i SHOULD be doing, there is a great, long list that makes me break into a cold sweat just thinking about. (spring cleaning on steroids, for one.)

before you take a peek at what’s been hopping off my needles, and fall madly in love and go straight-up bunny crazy, let me provide the following disclaimer: these bunnies are NOT for sale. i make them because i like making them, and they are going to be adopted by lucky little ones that i happen to love. not to mention that the pattern copyright forbids the sale of the finished products, which i adhere to out of sheer principle, apart from the legal ramifications. talented people and hard-working small business people deserve to have their work protected.

so, if you really feel you MUST have one, either it’s time for you to learn to knit, dust off your rusty skills, or wait for the genuine article to become available when the very busy pattern writer has a batch finished. be warned, though, they are not cheap, and they sell almost instantaneously. (and for good reason…they are AMAZING!)

now, feel free to squeal with adoration and slip into baby talk while you peruse these little critters.
