Bill found a post on the Farm site for a 10lb bag of llama fiber. A whole fleece.
I gave a call and she said, yes, she still had it. It needs to be sorted and combed and dehaired but the price was right so I am game! Anyone have any experience prepping llama fleece?!
After we picked up the fleece, we drove to St Augustine with several errands along the way.
I finished knitting this pair of mittens. The pattern is not published yet so I have posted it in black//white to save the eye candy until later!
Bill's on a roll; h found a new restaurant, Cafe Atlantica, for us to try. Very classy place, wonderful service all leading up to an amazing plate of Seafood Gnoocchi. I am still on a culinary cloud 9!
We stopped for a gaze at the ocean and a few deep breaths of this salty sea air!
It was packed with surfers. It is fun to watch!
After taking care of all of the thread tails for the mittens, I swatched this new project. I had to work out the gauge for the pattern because I am using my own hand spun Coopworth yarn and I need the hat to fit a human not some other!
I am excited about the results! The KAL doesn't begin to Thursday so now I have to put the brakes on my fingers until then!
Talk about exciting...look what is going to do its blooming! I am going out now to see-remember, it is a night blooming flower so I have to stay up to catch a view and sniff, the aroma is very heady!
