The big problem with this (other than no more quacamole) is that while I was pregnant I made myself a most lovely sweater with a rabbit angora yarn, which you can see at right. Doris freaking Chan even commented on my Ravelry project page. I was able to wear it maybe six times before I had the baby. Afterwards, I kind of figured it was just too hot to wear it. Rabbit angora is after all one of the warmest fibers. But even in the depths of Colorado winter, while I still loved the sweater, it made me want to tear the skin off of my arms.
I have fortunately been able to trade my lovely sweater for yarn to make a new sweater (thanks, Sarah!). I wonder, sometimes, which of us came out ahead on that one... but not very often, because I'm busy trying to decide which pattern to make with the pretty, pretty yarn.
