Phone

Finally my phone is back, actually I think it's a brand new one. But it is mine and all the buttons work again. Also the camera works, I know this because I tested it on the bunnies.

Ventilation Slippers

I have written a new pattern! I was having trouble finding a slipper pattern I really liked and as I am addicted to hand knit socks I was getting a little warm about the feet, so I created these. You can get your vary own pattern here.

Bunnies!!

Presenting the bunnies! This is Billy and Ivar, named after IKEA bookcases. The grey is Billy, he is very curious and active. The white one is Ivar he is a bit more scared and a lot more laid back. Billy is looking a bit funny at the moment because the breeder gave us a lesson in bunny shearing. Ivar has not made fun of Billy's hairstyle yet. The seem to really enjoy each others company.

Moving

I am thinking/trying out switching my Friday Studios shop to its own page apart from etsy for various reasons, cost being one. This page is through BigCartel witch helps with a lot of the setup and the "shop" stuff. 
Have a look, say what you think, buy some yarn! :)


Bunnies

I have arranged with a breeder, two of these are going to be ours!!! Two little males, one white and one black or grey. Look at those cuties!!!

Giant

Giant rabbit cage purchased! Ok, the home built thing got canceled at least for now. To many ideas - to  little rabbit knowledge. But I think they will love this cage. It is 215 x 78 x 100 cm, and you can give the rabbits separate "bedrooms" or keep them separate all together if nessesary. Now I just need some rabbits.  :)

Angora

I am thinking about, well actually more than thinking about, getting angora rabbits! Husband is with me, and we are looking for two bunnies and planning a home built, out door, luxury bunny home. :) I am so looking forward to this, its making my happy.
The angora rabbit is the breed that we get the beautifully soft and warm angora fiber from, so I am planning to shear them and spin yarn from the wool to, after I have spoiled them and petted them a lot.

Flannel - Flanell

I know how this sounds, really I do, and really I don't care. I sewed some new and improved menstrual pads. After my first tries I decided to buy some more/better materials and do lots of them. These are made from flannel, PUL which is a thin waterproof material and bamboo/cotton fleece as the absorbent core, fastened which my new KAM plastic snaps. I just want to say, there is a reason for my madness, these fabric pads are more comfortable, more absorbent and so much more happy and colorful than the commercial ones! That is all and that is enough. :)

300

300 grams of blended carded and drafted fiber, I am thinking a 3ply and a huge shawl for me, a mara perhaps. The colors are crappy because cameras don't like the night, scared of the dark probably, it is way more green in there.

Box

I don't know if I showed my boxy notions bag. Well if I did, here it is again! :) It is from Zigzag Stitches on etsy, we did an exchange, and it is great, so nicely finished inside and out, and she uses beautiful fabrics. I love the bicycles, and pattern blocks that is on this.
