Well you are very lucky or very very smart. Baby rabbits are almost *impossible* to bottle raise. Most of them die as they have extremely specific gut flora that cannot digest anything but mother's milk. Rabbit milk is one of those complex fluids science cannot come close to replicating. Even a 30-yr experienced breeder can't keep a litter alive on bottle alone. They say to mix in some of mother's "pellets"- that is, her poop (sorry) as it has necessary bacteria. In fact rabbits eat their post-digested foods & it is similar to cattle chewing cud. It is not "dirty" & they need it for digestion. I in fact even placed one of the mother's poops in the baby's nest & they all crowded round it like ants & appeared to be nibbling at it. Rabbit poop is not at all dirty, it is one of the "clean" types of poop, like horse or cow. This I am sure is no education for you, bakrmom only posting it for others who may not know about it. I did not, until she came along- I'd had a rabbit years ago, but was before internet! Now anyone can learn all about them from comfort of their own couch.

I am sure it was luck more than anything. They were a dwarf breed that usually has small litters. Mama had six and ended up with mastitis. Took her to the vet and they tried to save her but she didn't make it. They gave us kitten milk and syringes to drop milk into them. Somehow they all made it. One ended up being a Grand Champion.

Ordering known brands from them has always worked for me. Been buying from Zulily off and on for years. Ordering off brands from anywhere can be risky.

That's great! Juggling school work and kids(gkids,too) can be a challenge at times

This is the one I was talking about:

Yes I have made several. It will come out as a small lap or baby size. Using 4 Caron big cakes makes a large heavy afghan.

Oh good grief! If the items are being scanned and the price is wrong it's because it was entered into the system wrong OR the price has changed and no one updated the sticker on the shelf. Be an alert shopper and then complain where it might do some good- at the store and/or corporate. Yesterday I bought an item with a clearance sticker. It scanned at the regular price. The cashier double-checked and found that it had been reduced too early- it was supposed to go out this weekend. Adjusted the price and asked if I wanted to buy more since I was getting it at the reduced price. Cashiers aren't out to get you and most places are not allowed to price items "wiilynilly". They have to have a UPC to scan in most stores.

Sweet! My kids raised rabbits for years. We even hand raised a litter after the mama died! Kept all the babies alive with kitten milk and syringes till they could eat pellets

I have used them for a few items and was surprised my things arrived a few days earlier than expected.

Let cows, goats, sheep become extinct. No milk, butter, cheese, meat, leather, wool, etc. Yeah, that will be in everyone's best interest. Not!

What did you try? The Fleegle Heel? If so, why all the markers? I put 1 in the middle, sl1, knit to 2-3 past the marker, k2tog, k1. Turn, sl1, purl to 2-3 past the marker, remove marker, p2tog, p1. Turn, sl1, knit to 1 st before the gap, k2tog, k1. Turn, sl1, purl to 1 st before the gap, p2tog, p1. Keep going til you are back to your original number of stitches.

Tried the Japanese short row. I did use the fleegle heel in the first few socks I made, didn't like the fit so switched to German short row. I am fairly new to sock knitting and am trying to tweek methods to make the perfect sock for me

I usually use german short rows but tried this tonight. Really like it, a bit awkward with all the markers but the heel looks great. I think I need to use a smaller marker

4 oz. Wine glass with lid...

Like the way you think!
I carry cold brew tea bags, "special" treats for the GKs and a bottle of water.
Everything else is standard k/c stuff.

They are neither gullible or stupid. The call tactics scare people, they only hear the KEY words scammers say and panic.

Not a sock expert by any means, but I wonder if using a different type of heel shaping would help.

I use KnitPicks, the last set I bought was the shorties they came out with a few years ago. I have never had any problems. Another thought is the Deborah Norville sets. I have those also, bought with a coupon at Joanns. Very reasonable.
