Now Playing: En Vogue "Don't Let Go"
Aren't they cute?
Five beautiful babies from Mia and Gewurztraminer. Mia gave birth sometime yesterday afternoon. The fine mother she is, she pulled enough soft warm wool for the babies to snuggle into. I bring them into my office to ensure that they stay warm, and take them to Mia once a day for nursing.
Rabbits aren't like other animals; the does only nurse once or twice a day, and stay away from the nest the rest of the time. This is an instinct for them for thousands of years so that they don't draw predators to the nest.
Mia was appropriately upset when I took the nestbox from her cage late yesterday, and she'll give me the twice over today when I take them back out. But it will be a better arrangement, as it prevents any babies from getting out of the nest after nursing, and chilling to death.
On the knitting front, I swatched for the Ribby Cardi as all my yarn arrived from Elann the other day. I'm using the Lime Ice color, which I love. I'll cast on for the sweater today, after having read the instructions yesterday. It appears to be a well written pattern, which I like. I hate having to figure out things. I have enough things in my life that I have to figure out, besides one of them being something I do to relax. ;-)
