Suggestions Please for Yarn...

Our world is becoming green again. 
The cardinals are nesting in the evergreens right outside my kitchen window.  Zach stole this shot of Daddy cardinal yesterday. 
Those are not my tulips, but we are finally seeing tulips ready to bloom in my neighborhood. 


Progress is being made on my Skydive Stole. 
I'm over the half way point. 

I will bore you all with knitting another immediately after I cast off with this one. 
I'd like to knit the next with a yarn that has some fuzz to it. 
Suggestions anyone? 

On Saturday I was walking and passed an injured bunny.
A runner stopped and we watched as a police officer shoveled it into a big box....and took it away.
The sweet girl looked at me, and said, 
"I think I'm gonna cry" 
There are a lot of big hearts in this world and they never get due credit.   It's the Circle of Life and all that...poor bunny boo.

How fuzzy? Mohair fuzzy? You can't go wrong with Kidsilk haze from Rowan.

Isn't it so great to see some spring flowers and the returning birds?! Nice pictures!

I don't have a yarn suggestion, as I would just probably look for something with a touch of mohair. I don't have any specific names of yarn to offer.

I hope the Police Officer took the bunny to a vet or shelter!

I am so excited about your shawl. I have always wanted to knit it in alpaca. Knitting another while you are on a roll is very wise!

I love daddy Cardinal. Mama Cardinal was on our feeder last night and stayed long enough for me to get pictures. I love this time of year!

Zach is a marvelous photographer. He framed that daddy cardinal so perfectly among the pine.

Sorry about poor bun-bun. :-( I think I'm gonna cry too. I hate seeing injured animals.

I live in the swamp and so many get hit out on our road. :-(

Hurrah for spring! Glad it finally decided to visit your part of the world. I agree with Kim that Kid silk haze might be what you're looking for. Sad about the bunny although I wish they'd stop eating our plants!

I sent you a message on Ravelry. Take a peek when you get a chance.

Fuzzy yarn? I'm using Knit Picks Chroma and it's got a bit of a fuzz to it. It's also very soft and the colors are gorgeous.

Poor's the time for lots of little dead things on the side of the road. I hate driving this time of the year.

Zach's photo is fantastic.

Sad about the bunny. You know you're a good heart, too. :)

Zach took a great photo of the cardinal: I've never seen one in person.

I hope that box was brought to a shelter where the bunny got some kind of care. Nice spring photos!

Oh no the poor bunny, at least it will not suffer long. Good luck with choosing yarn.
