Can not believe it!! computer and internet both working at the same time....is really getting annoying,just hope it keeps going until I get a post written!! We have not bred any llama or alpaca girls for a few years because of moving and getting things set up again, but last fall we bred four of our llama females and I bought a young male alpaca for our girls, we put them together and the girls just laughed at him as he was smaller than they were and decided we would put them back together this spring....well Black Mommy had a surprise for us!! I went out to check the llama girls and look what I found!!

Went up to the local fibre mill and picked up some skeins of Alpaca and some of wool last Tuesday so have been busy washing the skeins....all 120 of them....and of course had to dry them in the house as the weather was so cold. Just love those shower rods that do not have to screw into the wall...you just put them up by pressure. I got four of them and use two chairs to support them and hang the yarn to dry on them....is so great if I can do it out on the deck in the sunshine but in the house it takes forever and I wanted some of them for the market today. They were dry yesterday so that is what I did all day yesterday. I like to wash them to get the spinning oil off them and then re-skein them as it makes them look so nice, it took me all day but I got half of them done and got the info tags on them.....I was up until 2:00AM getting them ready to go. Could sure feel it in my elbow and shoulder today.

Just a fast post as it is late and I better get to bed, have company stopping in early tomorrow....excuse me....I guess it will be this morning....it is already tomorrow. I think it is going to freeze....is only 2.4 out there, ran out and covered the few things that are still out, moved all the plants I want to save into the shed already. Today has been knitting more fingerless mitts plus everything else that eats up a person's day. so I am just going to post a couple of pictures of my flowers from this summer and then am off to bed!!
