Black Bunny Fiber has ARRIVED....

In a fit of joining, I also have joined, (or attempted to join) the Black Bunny Hop, http://blackbunnyhop.blogspot.com/2006/09/black-bunny-is-wild-animal.html it isn't hard, you just need to knit with the ellusive Black Bunny fiber of some sort and blog about it...I stalked Carol's etsy shop for a while and then called Rosies Yarn Cellar http://www.rosiesyarncellar.com/ for the low down on what was there. Blindly I ordered 2 skeins of DK weight (225 yds per) in the colorway named Grape Juice.

I don't know where the color came from, but it is the varigated denim-ish yarn that I have been searching for. I plan to make Susan Pierce Lawrence's Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl http://http://ma2ut.blogspot.com/2006/09/forest-canopy-shoulder-shawl.html at any rate, joined or not joined, I'm going to cast on for this as soon as I can get the project from hell off my needles.

You see about a year ago when I was expecting my 3rd child, I started a pair of socks from Opal Rodeo, I love the colors, and I'm sure it will bloom, but that yarn is like knitting with SEWING THREAD (just my opinion). To add insult to injury, I am doing them 2 socks on 2 circs, I think I will never live long enough to finish these socks. I have taken them off the 2 circs and am now racing them one against the other (1 magic loop, 1 on dpns) and I am thinking it is time for the heel, this is my first attempt at Wendy's generic heel pattern. Wish me luck ...

What beautiful colors! I've never tried the Black Bunny fibers before, but maybe I will now!
