Just when you think you've seen it all

I went to take photos for the paper at the Amana Festival of the Arts over the weekend. This is Kathi Huebner, of Oldhaus Fibers, Amana. She is spinning yarn directly from the undercoat of her French angora rabbit Hyacinth.

Kathi said Hyacinth is usually agreeable to this sort of thing and if she gets annoyed or has had enough, she either turns so her hind end isn't easily available. Or she pees on Kathi.

I  imagined putting Jamie in my lap and spinning yarn directly from him. The image didn't last long.


  1. Wow - talk about getting it directly from the source... no middle man there!

  2. I don't think my bunnies would sit still for that. But then again, neither would I.
