This past weekend my little sister graduated from law school. One might thing that this would have been a very busy weekend with little time for yarny pursuits. Au Contraire, my friends. We had a little time to kill, so my sister sent us up the street to the Yarn Garden, a quaint little shop with a nice selection. I picked out some Berroco Pure Merino to make pumpkin hat and booties for my stepsister's son, due in early autumn.
Then on Sunday we went to the Bent Pine Alpaca Farm. I learned many things I never knew about alpacas, and the proprietor of the farm gave me some literature to help convince my father to let me have alpacas at his farm! And of course I got a skein of alpaca yarn, which I am going to use to make a gift for my sister, a little way to remember the town she spent so much time in.
