I also received some lovely alpaca roving from North Star Alpacas. Maple also sent me a bar of some wonderful smelling lavendar soap. It is all so yummy. The alpaca fiber is extremely soft. I can't wait to spin it up although I'm a little anxious being as I've never spun alpaca before.
I've just realized that I have another awesome purchase I recently made. It arrived about the same time I purchased all my sock yarn so I was totally embarrased to reveal yet another thing. I do really love it. With spinning the Jacob I purchased from Red Barn I was able to weigh it and divide it up evenly so I will have equal amounts to ply and not as much left over as I have had of other fibers in the past. I purchased it from Just Pounds and Ounces on Ebay.
The pool is finally relatively clean. I still have a few things to do, like vacuum more. We are very much enjoying it. Here are a couple pictures. The first is of my youngest, Jordan, the one at the top and Sara's beau, Matthew. Jordan made me blob him out of the picture. :(
And of course, would any post be complete without a picture or two of Emma Belle?
