Alpacas are cool. Especially when you randomly stumble upon an alpaca shearing while driving around looking for houses for sale. I must say that the shearing process seemed very unpleasant for the alpacas.. being chased down, stuck in a small area until haircut time.. then being strapped to a giant board/table and laid out for everyone to see your everything. *sigh* If I didn't enjoy the wonderfulness of their coats, I almost might feel bad for them. :)
In knitting world... still working on Child's First Sock from Knitting Vintage Sock. I completed the first one last night and am in the middle of the first pattern repeat on the second. I think it will go pretty quickly. Unlike most sock patterns, I actually have memorized this one quickly and enjoy it. Can't wait to have another pair of pretty socks to wear!
