The Amazing Lace and Bobble Blue

I've been swatching for the Amazing Lace. My partner/project is the Isis Wrap from last summer's issue of Interweave Knits. I am using the Wool-Ease that I won during from Anti-Craft for the Knitting Olymipcs. It is a beautiful color, called berry I think.

Here is the progress I've made on Bobble Blue recently. I have the back done--Horray!

I love this project. I think I like knitting cables better than lace, although lace is much more pratical here in Texas.

I got my undyed yarn in from KnitPicks this week. I also picked up some packets of Kool-Aid. I guess you know what I will be doing this weekend!! I'll post pictures as soon as I am done!

Gretchen is being particularly destructive tonight. She grabbed a seam on our leather couch and pulled hard--using her whole body weight. She surprisingly didn't do a lot of damage. She loves the TV remote also and keeps on biting the buttons off of it--thankfully it still works. Now, she is coming after the laptop. She is in what is called "the bunny from hell" stage--her teenage years. They will pass.

No no no, those ears are too cute to belong to a hellbunny. My heavens, she gets cuter every moment, doesn't she?

That wrap is pretty and I really like you color choice for it.

So, how long do the teenage years last in bunny? I think I'd loose my patience... Though maybe not with those ears and feet there to pet...

The Isis wrap looks perfect for Tx and I love the color.

Hellbunny! That's so cute. (Since it's not my remote she's wrecking) So how long are bunnies teenagers?

I don't know about her bing in her teenage years. My daughter's bunny had this behavior her entire lifetime. We had a house rabbit years ago when our children were at home. George (the bunny) used to play hide and seek with Crystal (the Malteese dog. What a riot it was. George would come out of hiding just long enough for Crystal to see him, then the chase would begin. George always won, btw. George chewed the sofa and every plug and wire in the house, I swear! But, they are wonderful pets, just have to be careful and watchful. Nice meeting you this way and I enjoyed your website, too.
