That's a Whole Lotta Alpaca

Expensive days purchasing those hand carders, but I am glad to have them. That alpaca isn't going to go and spin itself!

My sister Bethany and I went to the Spinning Loft last week for a day of crafting. Bethany is working on a beret from Interweave Knits Winter Issue (her first time with double pointed needles) and I practiced my crappy spinning skills with a small sampler pack of merino and silk.

I wanted to call it Cody yarn, because it reminds me so much of my only boy cousin growing up and we always watched Nickelodean together. Na na na na na na na na Nick-a-load-di-annn!

Great job with that yarn! I am excited about the beret, it is coming along just fine.
