snowy saturdays

I live for Saturday mornings.  It is the only day of the week I feel like we don't have to rush off anywhere and can just relax and fill our time how we please.   This morning was an extra snowy Saturday so I just stayed in my jammies, sipped coffee, and knitted the morning away.  I also took stock on what I have accomplished over the last few weeks.  Last week I was feeling a bit of anxiety over the amount of projects I have completed but since taking inventory I am feeling a lot more at ease.  I have completed now 2 cowls (one butterscotch, one fig colored), a beautiful scarf, a necklace and some knitted bows for decorations.  I am working on getting some great photos of my loot so please be patient!  I am no where near the fastest knitter so sometimes I feel like I can't keep up with the demand in my head.  Since I don't see myself speed knitting anytime soon, I have learned to find ways to squeeze knitting in my daily life even if it's just a row or two in a doctor's waiting room or at lunch break during work.  I love to knit almost as much as I love to shop for new yarn which is good because if you find yourself knitting in public you may get asked a question or two about your hobby.
I love Saturdays with my two favorite guys!

new scarf

Despite all the crazy "getting ready for school" business this past weekend, I was able to start and finish a new scarf just in time to wear on my first day back!  I admit that Erica is definitely the knitter/crochet person here at three.bunnies, but this scarf was so simple I figured I'd be able to handle it.  I'm quite pleased with the results, considering it was created merely by crocheting the single chain crochet stitch over and over.  I'm looking forward to recreating this one in a few more colors--I wear scarves almost every day and love how this one doubles as a necklace.  

I hope everyone is have a good week!  Happy crafting.

back to school

It's my last first day of school tomorrow... as a student, that is.  I'm really excited about this semester, because in addition to putting together my Master of Fine Arts thesis show, Erica and I will be working hard putting together items in our three.bunnies etsy store as well as attending a couple awesome craft events (the details of which we will post later).  Erica is knitting away on some beautiful new scarves and cowls, and I've been busy drawing some little pieces for frame necklaces like the one you see above.

We'll also be posting here often--we've got lots of projects coming so stay tuned!

happy new years!

Hope everyone had a very happy holidays with their friends and families.  As we ring in the New Years and make our resolutions Taylor and I are setting our sights on 2012 for expanding three.bunnies and continuing to work on creating a wonderful selection of handmade items for the purpose of pleasing you all.  One of our goals we have already accomplished which was to get our Etsy site up and running.  Please feel free to check on our inventory here.  The selection is a little sparse right now but we are working diligently to fill it up.
