Is it really May?

Then why is it so damn cold! I want to turn my heat off for good! (At least until October....)

So I did have a wonderful fibery weekend....even though it was cold and rainy. I went to see my hubby play with his band at an art gallery on Friday night. That was fun, but him being the good husband that he is brought my birthday package from home from the lovely and talented Kris! He knew that I couldn't wait and now you can see why


That pink yarn? Is Cashmere baby!!!! Oh yeah, say it with me now...WAHOO!!! The other yarn underneath I found out is lace weight AND it's Kris's new favorite yarn. I can see why! I am not sure if I should make a shawl or socks. Seems to nice for my feet....

I met up with another lovely and talented person: Mia on Sunday. She needed some inspiration so I told her to check out some of my pattern books. She went home happy. She also took me here.

We saw these guys:


Sorry about the pole there in the middle. They were all shorn. They looked so skinny! But cute none the less. Speaking of cute


AAAAWWWWW!!!!! How cute is this little guy? He or she (not sure which) was in the hay. I had to pick it up. I wanted to squeeze it and hug it and call it George! I didn't bring him home, but I did bring this home


I have been seeing so many nice things that every one bought in Maryland that I felt left out. So I bought almost a pound of alpaca roving. CLEAN and PRIME. Lovely stuff really.

So there you have it. I did start a sock last night! Can you believe it? Progress pictures tomorrow or the next day.

Over and out.

That's funny because one of my kitties IS named George. But he's not tiny and in a haystack.

Nice gifts and such cute little tail poofs on those alpaca. I like 'em!

cashmere, alpacas, kitties, Mia and prime roving. What a freaking fabulous weekend!
Can you belive it SNOWED last night? HAIL yesterday? This weather is so odd. Weather report for this coming weekend, days ago said warm and sunny, the next day it said warm but tons of rain. This morning it said NEAR 90 degrees and partly sunny.

I don't care so long as its warm enough for my furnace to stay OFF!

Cute animals and yummy yarns make a great post! Love the little kitty and the naked alpacas! ;)
You are a lucky girl with all of that loot from Kris. Those colors are amazing!

Beautiful roving, I have some alpaca in my stash as well. It's destined to be this little sweater in one of my Wild Fibers magazine.
