A is for...Alpaca...

Of course, A has to be for Alpaca! How could you not love a little face like that? The Alpaca farm where this darling lives is not even ten miles from my house over in Vermont. I love the way they look and their gentle ways...the sounds they make are so soft! Then there is the yarn...well, sheer joy to knit with alpaca yarn!!!

Really must get back there soon and see how this little guy is doing. If you've been reading my blog for a while - you know that he was less than 24 hours old when this photo was taken.
Love this just says so much about them...
Just think, can you imagine having some fleece spun into yarn from these award winning alpacas? And, this was only one side of the area that had ribbons on it...there were three other sides just as full.
Thanks for letting me vent yesterday - today is much better! And, hopefully the first few days of the new year that were so trying are behind me...and I can look forward to a great year!!!
