Friday... So much Fiber... So little Time...

19. November 2010 11:09 by Jobo | 0 Comments

Where does the time go...  Seriously!  It seemed like there was a ton of time left before the holidays.  I have 2 pairs of mittens left to finish for other clients before Christmas, a straightforward hat, and a pair of pretty complex mittens for my own holiday knitting.  I have been plugging away at all of them, a little at a time, but I'm starting to get nervous that I won't be able to complete my own goodies after the "required" ones.  I know everything will be alright in the end, but you still start to worry a little bit.  *eeeek*

I've been knitting, spinning, carding fiber, finishing things, but haven't taken very many photographs unfortunately.  I did remember to photograph a fantastic meal we made this week:  I made my own homemade flour tortillas (from the encouragement and recipe I got over at 'All things Shea' - tortilla recipe!) and they were Fantastic!  Soft, yummy, and perfect for Fajitas and Quesadillas and the like.  See below:  Homemade flour tortilla, fajita topping made with leftover smoked chicken breast (smoked at home by the husbeast with his new BBQ toy) sautéed onions, green peppers, a little spice, some sour cream, cheddar cheese, and avocado slices!  (sorry if this makes you hungry, my stomach has started gurgling just reading this... I must make these again soon!)

He is almost ready for another full coat molt... so the grooming is pretty important right now.  With this breed of rabbits, they can ingest enough of their own fur during the "Coat Blowing" process that it can make them really sick, even die.  The condition is called wool block, or gut stasis, and basically it's a situation where the wool fills up the gut and it stops processing and digesting.  Either way, we don't want to have to deal with such terrifying sicknesses, so regular grooming, feeing healthy fiber (hay, hay and more hay) and watching to make sure his little bowels are moving regularly.  (I never thought I'd be as interested in the BMs of a 5 pound critter.  People tell me that once I have kids it's the same thing all over again!)

Hope you all have a great weekend... with lots of knitting time and R & R :)
