Knitting and an Alpaca Farm!

I am just so excited! My daughter has had the opportunity to work with a local Alpaca farmer and learn to show Alpaca's, how cool is that?  We went to the farm yesterday, those little buggers as so cute, a wee bit on the feisty side too, but I think I'm in love....with the WOOL!!!

That's right, I'm not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing that this farmer is also opening a yarn/product shop next weekend during his Alpaca open house.  I'm a goner for sure.  Have you ever knit with Alpaca wool?  I have not, simply because it's so expensive, but after seeing some finished products, I think a few skeins are in my future!

As for my daughter, well, she's going to learn to show these guys, there is a show in April they'll be going to, then they're going to introduce these guys to the County we need to find a 4H alpaca judge, who knows where this will lead!!!

On the flip side of you know they sell Alpaca meat?  Ewww, maybe it's good, but it just seems wrong!



  1. They are so cute! I couldn't eat one after looking into there beautiful faces. They look like something out of Dr. Seuss.

  2. Dr. Seuss, that is a perfect way to describe these guys!

  3. Hi Lulu -

    I popped over here from Writers Alley. Your email address caught my eye. Our last names are almost identical with the exception of the first letter. :)

    Nice blog. I'm just getting back into crochet after a 7-year hiatus, so I can relate to the obsession with yarn.



Love your comments, thanks for stopping by!
