In which the Rabbit neither apologizes for nor explains her long absence from this blog.

The Rabbit has been spinning, spinning, spinning.

When not spinning, spinning, spinning, she has been knitting warm things for herself in a vain attempt to say warm in the frigid Ontario January:

A cowl and fingerless mitts made out of Malabrigo silky merino:
Typically, the Rabbit's camera is making this color, touchingly called "Ravelry Red," look much more orange than it does in person. It's really quite a pinky-red, and very flattering to the bunny.

A pointy hat made from Noro Kureyon:
An ingenious pattern from Rosie's Yarn Cellar in Philadelphia (available here)that uses short rows to make the stripes in the Kureyon go up and down instead of around the hat. The Rabbit is finally seeing the point of that Noro stuff.

Another cowl made of an alpaca/silk blend from Americo Original's Cadena (a tiny bit scratchy, but warm):

Another cowl and mitts, made from my handspun yarn. This yarn was spun from hand dyed Blue Faced Leicester top in the colorway "Patina" from Frabjous Fibers:

The Rabbit must now turn her attention to a) more hats for herself b) felted slippers for Mr. Rabbit. Both must be completed by the opening ceremonies of the Olympics, when she will join Team Sasquatch for the 2010 Ravelympics.
