Awesome Possum

While the camera was out of commission, we had a new member attend our Stitch and Bitch. This is Junebug. Despite her apprehensions, Nicole is holding her. It must be that maternal instinct kicking in.





Suzanne, our crochet teacher, rescued her (notice the crocheted leash the possum is sporting?). Junebug was near death, having been licked to near oblivion by a very enthusiastic dog. There has been discussion about using her soft baby fur in future spinning endeavors, but for now, Junebug is content being nestled in a baby hat made out of Blue Sky Dyed Cotton. (PS- the hat is marked $20, not the animal.)



Thanks to Whitney for documenting this event!

When are your Stitch n Bitch gatherings? I would love to be able to attend!

But $20 is such a reasonable price for a baby possum.....

We meet every Thursday, 6-9 pm. But honestly, people come in and knit at all hours, so you're always welcome.
