The prettiest bunny ever

Phoebe, my pretty princess of a bunny died on Sunday night. She was lethargic and not breathing well so we rushed her to Dove Lewis- the emergency clinic I was hoping I'd never have to take a pet to. After several hours we cried and decided to euthanize her and then cried some more. It was really sad but best for her.

She's a german angora and I have tons of her fur safely stored away that I've been wanting to spin. You can see my first attemps at spinning her fur here. I though I had lots of time to learn and lots of angora fiber to proctice with since she kept growing more. Now that I don't have her anymore I don't want to waste all her fur learning to spin it.

Is there anyone out there that can spin angora and would do that for me? For a price, of course. I just want some mittens with a Phoebe cuff or maybe a little mini-Phoebe to snuggle up with.

Oh Casey I am so sorry that you lost your beautiful bunny. I do hope that you will be able to make something out of her fur.

So sorry to hear about Phoebe - her fur will be even more special now & I'm sure it will be a great project that you make with it.

My heart goes out to you. I know exactly how you feel because this weekend I lost our beloved cat, Bitter. He was caught by a coyote early July 1st. I had just taken portraits of him last week. It is so sad when these little creatures who trust us so are gone. My sympathy to you.

I am so sorry to read about Phoebe, Casey! She was really lovely ... it must have been very hard for you. Take care.

I'm so so sorry abut Phoebe. I hope you do find a good spinner soon to help you out with the yarn. Let me know if you need me to help spread the word - I'd be more than happy to put a note up on my blog (not that I have a ton of readers, but sometimes every little bit helps).

I'm sorry to hear about your bunny. My hamster just died a few weeks ago while I was gone for work, but I'm sure it wasn't nearly the same thing. Hopefully the fur will turn into something beautiful.
