Warm summer day.....

Today was a visit to the Alpaca Farm for Miss "P" and I. These guys are so cute.
From this..... to this......
The reason for the visit was to drop of Leslie's new sweater. My own design, top down raglan with a stag horn cable and side vents. 100% Alpaca and it took approximately 1250 yds of light worsted weight. I'm in the process of writing the pattern out, but this one was a learning process for me and there are a few things I need to tweak. But all in all I'm pretty happy with it. And there are still a couple of skeins left to make some socks.

And yes, that is a pair of Fetching to go with it.P.S.: Thank-you to my model. (it was pretty warm out to be wearing a sweater)

Now I'm working on a cardigan for Julie for the Knitter's Fair. Pictures soon.

So big....

It's amazing how fast they grow...Rowan is already smiling and cooing and sticking her tongue out alot.
Paisley is swimming like a fish and not afraid to go in the pool by herself anymore. (As long as gramma is close by, of course!)And little Miss Rowan is wearing her Yarni Cardigan already, the sleeves are just a little long. I guess I'll have to knit one in DK weight just to get a bigger size.
And during this lovely photo shoot she christened it with a little spew!!!! Good thing it's superwash.In other knitting news, I finished the Alpaca sweater for Leslie. I'll take some photos when it has dried. And I had enough yarn left over to knit a pair of Fetching for her. (still in progress)

I was sent this to post on my blog but the funny thing is I was attacked by a cat once. It was a mail slot in a door and when I lifted it to push the mail through a black paw with claws popped through and nailed my hand. Scared the crap out of me too!!!!!!
