A visit to see Alpaca Farm and Poor Meat stars in my Dreams
Highland Alpaca Farm, Grove City, PA Oct2 was the open to the public day. What fun we had looking at and patting the animals!! Can I have one? Please? I promise to be good...No? Well, ok never mind!
I bought some wonderful black alpaca from the farm and am tempted to buy more yarn..Very soft. I will post pic of sock I made from Socks From The Toe Up...Diamond Gansy. The guy in the lower pic used to play bass guitar with Bob Dylan.
Started another pair of socks from Nore Silk Garden Light (Col2018) is now a discontinued yarn for some reason...Kinda splitty according to some; I have not had problems.
Tatting on snowflakes with new thread from Fuji...glow in the dark of coarse. Also bought three from Robison-Anton in white and pink also for glowing Christmas ornaments..Do you see a theme here. All I can tell you is that acquiring larger numbers of these on your tree is really an amazing sight...after the lights go out!
