A Photo Session With Linus


I love any opportunity I get to photograph my little buddy, Linus. Once upon a time he helped us with a video for our old Special Reserve yarn, Sugarbunny and he was the little cutie modeling a knit sweater on this very blog a few weeks ago. Yesterday, we got to take advantage of his very accommodating personality (and his ability to hold still lying on his back all by himself) to take some fun photos with Palette.


He very patiently waited for me to lay out all my stashed balls of Palette while he stretched out in the middle of the growing pile. He patience was definitely finite though, and he told us he was “so OVER this” by he flipping himself over and bulldoze balls of palette around on the floor with his front feet. His favorite, favorite thing to do is to smooth out wrinkles in blankets and “organize” things on the floor if they happen to be wherever he doesn’t want them (including yarn). He got to putter around and help “organize” all that yarn into big piles as a little treat for humoring us for as long as he did!


Happy Spring!

    Linus is adorabubble! I wish I had my very own cute, fluffy bunny to lay in my yarn stash while I knit. 🙂

    I’m a relatively new Angora owner who has adopted a 3 year old English Angora. I have been looking all over for grooming tips for him, especially for harvesting his wool which is plentiful and soft. Do you have any favorite techniques, tools you use, etc. that you are willing to share or any go-to websites or sources for information?
