Alpaca Festival

So to keep my mind off of the loss of my mother - one of my friends took me to an Alpaca Festival up above Quakertown PA area.  It was just a little show - not alot of people and not alot of activity.   Steeple View Alpacas a small farm with some of the cutest alpacas!!!  We got to go into the field and see them.  It was a really hot day but they were happy little animals. Then we watched a demo on dying with Kool Aid.  It was very interesting - now I need to get some un-dyed wool or alpaca and give it a try.  Which is good as I'm heading to Michigan for the Michigan Fiber Festival this week.  I cant wait!! New vendors and new fibers!

I cast on travel projects this week.  I was looking thru French Girl Knits and found several projects I liked.  One is cast on and enough rows started that it should be good traveling knitting.  One project I have cast on three times - and not happy with any.  So that was is not meant to be.. so it shall become something else.

More the rest of the week from the show!!!!
