Today, my dear Zara finally found a place on my chair that lets her sit with me without interfering with my knitting or laptop computing...
I actually hope this is the start of a trend.
Meanwhile I get to celebrate the generosity of others again. Last fall we switched financial advisors. My new advisor is also the advisor to an alpaca farmer. He sent me a box.....
full of yummy alpaca yarn!
It also had this in it:
Luscious soft bulky alpaca. This one creates a challenge for me. I've never knit anything with bulky yarn. I don't quite know what I want to do with this particular 200 yards of softness. Lots of folks seem to like working this up into scarves, but ... well, I don't WEAR scarves. I want something ELSE to do with it.
And the othe stuff -- I've just got to work out a scarf or hat for my advisor out of some of it. 'Cause you know, gentlemen do wear scarves. And it's unusually cold down there in North Carolina.
This totally offsets this:
What's up with these darned crochet hooks? Why are they bending and breaking like this???
