This morning the sun was out and at noon when I went out I was surprised at how warm it was, the snow we had got the day before was melting......two hours later the snow and wild wind moved in and we had a real snow storm, first it came from the north then turned around and hit us from the west. It is now clearing up and it is supposed to get cold. For a snow picture...just look at the one in my previous post, did not feel like taking any more snow pictures today. Instead I will give you some Llama and Alpaca baby pictures. Blossom is really growing and is such a busy little Bee, is never with her mother always visiting around, as you can see Cusco is one of the herd and then finally I got a picture of the baby Alpaca Bella, her mother does not want us taking pictures of her baby, the picture of Bella looking over her mothers back is so cute, her mother Venus had just put herself between me and Bella so I could not get a picture...or so she thought. But Bella is so curious she has to come and see what I want.
We have our last market this coming weekend, it is Friday and Saturday and then we are finished for this year thank-goodness. Then we can think about Christmas. Dyed up some llama yarn than I had, it was given to the Llama Club by a llama owner, I bought a couple of cones sight unseen as they said it was the lightest colors but it is still a dark tan color so dyed it two colors in the kettle and it turned out not bad, and I washed up some of the sock yarn I had spun at the mill, it has so much spinning oil in it, it looks and feels so much nicer when washed. Will wash up some more tomorrow. Knit a pair of fingerless mitts and started on another pair tonight, am almost knit out!! Next week will start on Christmas baking and Jam making for Christmas presents. plus want to get to the tree lot and get the same type of tree we got last year, we have never had a tree like that, I can not remember the name of the tree but I think I saved the tag that was on it, hope I can find it, it was so beautiful. Well am off to bed, sounds like the wind has gone down a bit. Hope for better weather tomorrow!!
