The Rundown

Some days the ideas flow nonstop, one thing leading to the next in a mythical progression of inspiration.  On those days, I have a multitude of knitting project and writing ideas, feel inspired to take photos or sew and bake.

Today is not one of those days.

We had a great Easter weekend.  On Saturday there was sunshine and much playing and knitting outside, baking of strawberry rhubarb crumble, and I didn’t take a single photo.  I even resurrected a long-languishing lace project and enjoyed knitting several rows before returning to the ease of stockinette on my Rayonnant, which I’m still trying to salvage.  Then on Sunday we had an early morning departure planned, and I completely forgot to put together PB’s basket.  I got her some of these play silks and painted a story box, but again there was no photo. Soon, I hope.

On Monday the rain came, and with it a sense of domestic responsibility.  There was a lot of laundry and unopened mail to catch up on, and I spent my usual morning blogging time working around the house.  It was a dreary day all around, followed by a bit of a rocky night.  I’ve had a lot of coffee this morning, and my outlook is definitely improving!

I don’t know why I’m sharing all of this, except to show that blogging isn’t always as intuitive or timely as we might like.  Where I would have prefered to show you the colorful and crafty images of select parts of the past few days, I’m challenged to describe them and share the moments that happened in between all the blog-worthy activities.

I do have this photo that Sweetie took of PB holding a hand-carved bunny her grandmother made. Isn’t it great?

I hope you have an inspired day.

FO: Bunny Nuggets!

The Nuggets are here.

They’ve been hiding, congregating, and generally getting into mischief.

Apparently if you keep them in small groups and give them cookies from time to time, they will be quite happy.

  • Pattern: Bunny Nuggets, a free pattern by Rebecca Danger
  • Yarn: Wool Candy leftovers
  • Needles: US size 6
  • Mods: I did 3 and 4-stitch icords for the ears instead of knitting them in the round.

These knit up so quickly that you’ll have a warren of wee nuggets in no time.  You can use any weight of yarn, which means they’re great for busting old leftover bits of yarn from your stash.  And let’s not forget how cute they are.

What are you still doing here?  Go get your yarn and make a few!  And be sure to have a great weekend, too.
