Look What Came To Live At Our House!!
I know I said the door was closed, the inn was full.....but...I guess I left it open a crack...and look who came to live with us...more gift llamas...but they have to be the cutest gifts we have ever gotten, the little boy is the largest and the little girl is the smaller, they have different fathers but they look like twins. Now have to think of names for them!! In a couple of weeks some of our llamas and one alpaca should be having their babies....there is going to be a whole lot of cute running around in the barnyard.
I have been busy resorting my llama fleeces and a friends that have already been in two shows and getting them ready for the conference show at the end of Sept. Trying to decide whether I will put another fleece in the show but it is so soft and so full of trash have been picking it all afternoon, also have bags of alpaca fibre sorted and ready to go to the mill. The entry's for the Handspinners choice class I was judging and spinning up an oz each of nineteen different entry's is finished and ready to go. Now to decide whether I will enter any of the other classes.
Have almost finished knitting another pair of socks, just going to start decreasing for the toe on the last sock, have been happily knitting socks all summer but all of a sudden do not even want to see another sock. Have to get something different on the needles. We have had some really hot days lately and usually we always have a breeze blow in in the evening to cool things off but not the last couple of days so the house has been so hot, has finally cooled off here at midnight so am off to bed. Tomorrow is another day of picking debris out of llama fleece......
