Knitter Bunny's™ Dutch Rabbits and Yarns

Bunnies and Yarn, Need I Say More

It’s Here!

Today is the first day of the yarn crawl. I’ve scheduled this post as I will be fairly busy showing off all of my patterns at BlackSheep at Orenco. I hope that I see some of my readers there. Wait, do I have readers?

Well, in any case, I hope to see a lot of knitters there.


If you stop by, let me know you read the blog and I’ll give you a cookie. 🙂

Trunk Show for Me!

I’m excited to let you all know that my first official Trunk Show will be during the Rose City Yarn Crawl, March 5-8th, 2015 at BlackSheep at Orenco!

I will be there on and off throughout all four days of the crawl. My patterns and samples will be there whether I am or not! lol

Here is a quick sample of what you might see if you stop by:







Kokomo meets Hero

Hero went to the tree lighting at Orenco Station. He even wore the little sweater I made him for an hour. No fuss. He rode in my arms and was petted by many children and adults. Really, this is the calmest rabbit I have ever had in my barn.


Before we went out though, Hero met the shop kitty at Black Sheep, Kokomo. They had a very sedate meeting where noses were touched and bunny ears were sniffed.  I often enjoy having Kokomo on my lap, so it was very nice to see how good Hero was with her and also how good Kokomo was with him.


Exciting News

So, I’ve been collaborating with a local yarn shop. It’s one that I frequent often. I go to guild there weekly or I try to (this week’s head cold prevented my usual Thursday night knitting with friends). While Tina has a smaller shop than some of the other yarn stores, I’ve just really found my groove there. I love the guild and the people and Tina offers to order yarn if it’s not in the shop. Plus she is building her tatting offerings and seeking new yarn lines. It really is a delightful, and growing, shop

Now for the exciting part: I’m designing a monthly knit-along. It’s a year (12 months) of socks!!

We are going to explore different cast-ons, cast-offs, heels, toes, and patterns. I’m terribly excited about it and have already written the first 2 patterns for the year. I’m anticipating a fun year of sock-u-cation. As I finalize things with Tina I will put up another post so interested parties can contact her to sign up.

Right now, our plans are to offer the yarn, pattern, and some little goodies for sale as a monthly purchase. So you can pick and choose which months to order. You will be able to see the first quarter’s socks soon. That’s right, it’s not going to be a complete mystery. Each quarter we will release photos of the socks for that quarter, while still keeping the rest a secret. I’m not a huge fan of mystery knits. I like to see what I am making.

So, for now, if you might be interested in joining my little year of socks, leave a message in the comments or send me an email. 🙂
