Bunny Body Parts

Nope, we haven't gotten back into raising rabbits as a meat source (been there, done that) so this isn't a post about butchering rabbits.


When dear daughter came into our house Sunday and saw this yarn carnage laid out on the couch, she suggested I take a picture of it and label it "Bunny Body Parts."  (Think she might have a weird sense of humor?  Oh, ya.)


For the upcoming Easter holiday, with luck, all those miscellaneous knitted bodies, arms, legs and ears will be transformed into more bunnies like the one pictured above.

And another project from Super Mama Pea. I will have to send you a picture of my 0 calorie Dark and White Chocolate Easter Bunny.

Nancy said...

So, you make bunny body parts in your spare time eh? You crack me up, your girl too. Hope your frankenbunny turns out beautiful! ;-)

Chicken Mama said...

I believe my exact words were, "That looks like a bunny autopsy."

Carolyn said...

Hehe!!

Sparkless said...

Very cute bunny. Glad you Frankensteined him together.

Kelly said...

How funny!
Did you like raising rabbits for meat? I eventually want to do it. Right now I have pet rabbits and couldn't imagine eating them EVER! But to get the ugly white ones with red eyes, just maybe.....

Stephanie said...

That is adorable!

FoxyLady said...

When I saw the little photo of "bunny parts"....I was thinking of meat for the freezer. Little did I know....
Nice sky photo.
Cute bunny too. :)

Susan said...

I'm glad you put that heading in there, because I wouldn't have guessed what all those pieces/parts were to become! That is a cute bunny - is it an easy pattern?

DFW said...

Love your new header photo, beautiful! Oh, & the bunny's cute too.

Jane @ Hard Work Homestead said...

You have to remember some of us might see 'bunny body parts' and be scared to open the post ;) Whew, at least this one was safe.

Lisa said...

Your bunny is so Cute!!! I like the way he's posed on one of your potholders (?) nestled beside some pretty flowers. Love your new header. That sky is beautiful.

Lisa said...

PS I just saw Jane's comment as I hit 'publish'... and actually.... that is what I thought at first!!! :)

Mama Pea said...

Tombstone Livestock - I think we ALL need to see the picture of your 0 calorie Dark and White Chocolate Easter Bunny! Let's have it!

Mama Pea said...

Nancy - You're pretty funny, too, Missy! Frankenbunny! Love it.

Mama Pea said...

Chicken Mama - I believe your exact words were, "Look at all those bunny body parts! Or else it's a bunny autopsy." I thought the "bunny body parts" was pretty cute. The bunny autopsy not so much! ;o}

Mama Pea said...

Sparkless - If you didn't have the pattern (or completed wabbit) it would be kinda hard to figure out what all those parts and pieces were meant to be!

Mama Pea said...

Kelly - Raising the rabbits for meat was actually pretty easy . . . prolific little buggers that they are. Hubby liked that they were so easy to butcher, and much easier to dress than, say, a chicken. I just didn't care for the meat. (I'd rather eat chicken given the choice.) In a young rabbit the ratio of meat to bones isn't great and the flavor was always "dry" . . . to my taste anyway.

Mama Pea said...

Stephanie - Thank you, ma'am!

Mama Pea said...

Foxy Lady - Not nice of me, I know, but I meant to lead you astray!

Thanks for the compliment on the blog header photo. And bunny!!

Mama Pea said...

Susan - Pattern is super-simple to knit. It's the putting it all together that takes a little time. (No free lunch.)

Mama Pea said...

Thanks so much, DFW!

Mama Pea said...

Jane - You're so right! Pictures of raw rabbit meat would not be to your liking, for sure.

Mama Pea said...

Lisa - I was just plain evil in choosing that post title, wasn't I?

Da wabbit is sitting on a . . . what would you call it? A table mat? It's 12" square . . . something I use in place of what they used to call doilies. (Well, I guess they're still called doilies, but I don't think anybody uses them much anymore!)

Leigh said...

Whew! Glad we clarified that one in a hurry. :)

Mama Pea said...

Leigh - But I see you were brave enough to venture into the post! ;o}

Erin said...

Too funny! I love that new header photo too...

Mama Pea said...

Erin - Thank you!
