Smokey gets a haircut...she's slightly embarrassed...

Smokey has lost her baby coat, and I have 2 ounces of angora wool to spin! She looks a little "sheepish" and isn't quite sure if she likes her new look....she is enjoying hopping around on our new plywood subfloor we're putting in our front room.

Silly wabbit....

Still enjoying Smokey, the French angora. She likes to hop around on the tile in our dining room.

Had fun dying roving at the GA National Fair on Saturday - dyed some merino rovings with indigo. The pot of dye looks nasty - yukky yellow green, but it's a miracle when you pull it out and let the air hit it - it turns a beautiful blue!!

Smokey comes home...

Here she is - I'm now the proud owner of a French angora rabbit! She's 4 months old, friendly and loveable, and I can't wait to spin some mittens and socks from her. She came home with me today while I was attending a spin-in at the GA National Fair in Perry, GA...I wandered over to the rabbit show and was smitten. Stay tuned for bunny updates.
