Luckily for me, there are nice people out there that harvest bunny hair, wash it, dye it, and then sell it to me! I love those people. Hubbie understands and says he isn't jealous in the slightest. I've chosen to believe him because it means lovely yarn.
I recently got to indulge in my angora love. TK, Lana (one of the ladies from our knitting group), and I want to dinner in the village. (Can I just say jalapeno hushpuppies with maple butter? Soooooo yummy!) (Please excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard.) Before dinner we went to Downtown Yarns and I came across Malabrigo Handspun Angora. (said with a sign worthy of a teenaged girl with her first crush) I love love love love love it!
So soft, so lovely, such small yardage. It was only 40 yards and a bit pricey, but worth it. It claimed to be a worsted weight, but it worked up bulky. I paired it with some Classic Elite Lush and made it into a shawlette.
It's a small shawlette, but the perfect size for a scarf. As soon as I have it photographed, I'll put up some pictures.
Did I mention that I'm in love?
