Tour de Fleece Day 10 - Day of Rest?
Of course, while Sugar was otherwise occupied, Grumpy and I were able to spend some photo time with Rex. His Suri locks are so beautiful and the luster is unbelievable. He thinks he's a race horse. I've never seen a cria run sprints like Rex but then again, he is the only "spring" cria we have this year so he has to entertain himself somehow.
Since this is the "day of rest" for the Tour de Fleece, I also plan to finish knitting up the rest of my Confetti Reign Handspun for a special gift I've been working on. I started it while in the hospital last week and hope to finish it before Saturday. Fingers Crossed.
Finally, here is the results of this weekend's spinning. Not a lot done since we were breeding the Alpacas plus I was sorting but enough to make my yarn, Ode to Camelid. It has Suri Alpaca, Huacaya Alpaca and Camel. No Llama because I haven't met a Llama worth spinning yet (or at least blending with my Alpaca). Sorry, Llama peeps. I am thinking about plying some raw Suri locks into the yarn. I've seen too many raw lock yarns posted on FB this week and I've been inspired.
Tomorrow, I'll be back to kicking but on the Tour de Fleece but for today I'll be a Fiber Sorting Queen! Of course that's after I go to work this afternoon. Argh! Too many enjoyable responsibilities.
