office rabbit

Back when I first learned how to spin I was given this almost raw practice fiber (1 oz) along with my spindle and I bought a little ball of purple fiber (2 oz) because I wanted to keep learning without a big spending, and it was pretty and cheap. The rest of the wool I bought was bought on sale on ebay (8 oz of 80/20 merino/silk for a grand total of 9 bucks including shipping). But this is the story of the little 2 oz of purple wool.

I don’t have a picture of that little ball to show you. I don’t even have a picture of the rabbit as a skein, before I washed him and knitted him into a square. I don’t have a picture of the little rabbit before he was stuffed or before he left home to become an office rabbit. But thankfully, the kind Bear whose office he inhabits and guards took pictures of my little rabbit at work.

rabbit on computers

Here his is in his early days on the job. He still guards the computers sometimes from above. Better for sneak attacks ya know. He has taken many a blow protecting those computers from other office inhabitants. The worst was a pencil that went straight through his rump. Thankfully all vital areas were missed and with a little tugging he was good as new and back on the job.

Once he gained his reputation as a fierce guard rabbit he moved to sit on the desk most days. More comfortable (those computers are warm) and most days, just the sight of him is enough to warn off any bad intentions.

guarding Bear

This is where he sits when Bear is in the office. He can keep a better eye on the whole room and Bear this way. He prefers it when Bear’s out though. That monitor stand isn’t very cozy.


Then finally, end of day. The little office rabbit sleeps between two plants at night. Here he is glad to relax and have the day be over. I’m happy to see the little rabbit is well and happy.
