We even went out and saw some alpaca’s at the Alpaca Extravaganza . We saw lots of great animals and there was a very nice assortment of vendors. I couldn’t convince my hubby that we could make a little room for one in the guest room and walk it down to the park every day for grazing… hmmm (an alpaca that is, not a vendor). However, I did get these pictures,
a nice big skein (650 yds!) of charcoal grey alpaca to make hubby some socks, and a cute bag by Mango Moon (like I needed another one) for carrying my WIPs. I really like the wide strap and it's **purple**
I finished the Surf socks Friday night and boy I am glad they are finished! I then cast on for another PADs hat and the “Amanda’s Squatty Sidekick” felted purse. I finished the hat, and am still working on the purse. The purse pattern promises it will be a quick knit and I think I am actually about halfway finished.
I just don’t have the will to knit right now. Doing mundane household things like updating our checkbooks, making a few phone calls and updating the budget worksheet along with doing a couple of loads of laundry have used up most of my energy. This blog post might be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. I think when I get done I’ll probably just park myself in front of the TV and watch home decorating shows until I doze off or get ideas about redecorating.
