Santa is sending a new hoodie for great Grandson Neji arriving very shortly and maybe even on my birthday . I sure do hope he likes it. Then we have a new hat & mitts for big brother Matiss . The pastel blue will go with his fair hair. Last but not least a new hat for Riley with his mitts. I like the idea that the ear lugs can be removed. Do have a Merry Christmas all.

Here are some new quickies for Leslie's shop. I do hope she enjoys them.First two pair of gloves from her loveable Ceasar. Then on to a
medium shade of blue. The colours sometimes to come out brighter with my camera as I am not a professional picture taker. I am quite amazed at what I have learned with the help of my girls. Last but not least a lovely pair of grey cable gloves with her new shade just come in .

Job Well Done

Well today after a lot of thought and decision this is the completed prize from Ceasar. I have called it Ceasar's Pullover Pattern. It has been made for his proud owner Leslie of Canadian Comfort Alpacas. Hopefully she will like it as well. If not I guess it is off to the drawing board again.
Also a couple of fill ins completed as well , a baby set for sale now that I have found out we are having a great grandson. Also a pair of fun socks for me from a kit my daughter (KNIT OBESSION) bought for me. They sure are nice and warm. If interested re: my sales go to Thrumminalong

Well here is a little bit of everything I finished a second hat for my friend Barbara . That's is it for her order. Along with our new baby hoodie but found out Friday eve. that we will welcome a new great grandson in January. The colour will have to go. Also a new pattern for fingerless gloves made for Leslie at Canadian Comfort Alpacas. Hope you enjoy all the goodies. Busy working on a sweater now for Leslie to match her gloves . & having lots of fun counting & measuring to make all perfect. Also am working on a little outfit with purple violets but no good for a boy child either. So back to the drawing board.

New Efforts Finally Finished

Well have come to finish some orders for a friend . Boy it did take all summer with this heat to complete them . The fingerless gloves different patterns 5 pair of them were all done in black as
requested so the lovely patte
rns will not show. So later will do them all again in shades that will show off the designers hard work.
The ladies hats are done
two of them. I am afraid that one might be a bit bright so am working on another at the moment to suffice . I do hope that the recipients of the gifts will enjoy as well.
This was done between 26 jars of strawberry ja
m, 6 raspberry jam & 6 peach jam. Still have
one more batch of raspberry to do. So a bit of re
laxing today arm is still sore where growth was cut out but coming along very well. Told not to sit in sun & suck it up so willingly. On to more shaded areas of the back deck.

Well I have been slow posting but have time now while the soccer games are on for the next month. I have taken a break this past week and have been busy doing strawberry jam. Our rooms have been painted with the living room complete and the kitchen almost done. Hubby has worked so hard.

I completed two pair of fingerless gloves for a friend but you can't see the lovely patterns as they are black. I also have a pair of slippers asked for in black but the customer never showed up. So will place in trunk for a sale.

Our son finally was able to get high speed for us for our internet. Boy what a difference . Looking forward to downloading pictures. Hope all are well and enjoy the warm sunny days.

Well today I was able to get caught up a wee bit & put some more goodies in the trunk for the Alpaca Farm. Have been going over the stock & seeing what stash I have and colours. Getting down to mostly browns. Hope Leslie calls soon need some colour in this stock or her customers will think she only has brown alpacas.

This is Cecily and her first born. His name is Drayden and looks so tiny. I can't remember any of my children being that small. The new hoodie in pastel green will compliment his colouring. It is a new pattern designed by redknitz (Knit Obession) . How fitting for it to go to Drayden on his new path in life. To you Cecily all the best and enjoy him while he is small. They grow so quickly.

Well here are a few more articles to deliver to the farm where the alpacas play. Boy fingers are all shrivelled from making thrums to be knitted into the socks. The smaller socks are for children so that they may enjoy the softness of the wool also. Have a few more surprises up my sleeve .

Must be hand washed and laid flat to dry but was told a great way to do them is place in sock bag , handwash and rinse . Then place in washer and spin lightly to take out the water. Lay flat to dry . I place mine on a towel on the top of the freezer. Enjoy all !!!

Well here are some warm socks to keep you feeling great. They were knitted for Canadian Comfort Alpacas. The first pair are handspun with alpaca & wool . They are very heavy and also have the thrums in the feet to stop the cold.The second is a lighter sock but long for wearing inside your boots also with the thrums in the feet & toes.

The thrums are bits of alpaca fleece knitted into the sock . They form a heart shape pattern and can be done in many colours. Comfort Alpacas like to stay with the natural colours of the alpacas but do have the odd fleeces dyed.

Ever had one of those days when things just don't go right. It is terrible to have a bad hair day so here is what you do. Fortuately we have a hairdresser in the family so the cost is low. All you have to do is feed them . Sorry never took a picture of finshed product but will do that later. Have fun one and all .
Then i took my turn cutting and colouring my daughters hair. Ever had those shaky hands afraid that you will cut too short???? Well i earned my badge for good judgement and being able to see straight for a change. Must be the new glasses. We are good for a few more months. Thanks Lee Ellen ..

Meet our pride and joy !!!!!ELVIS is still in the building. He came to us at 10 months old and is pug and jack russell cross. he use to round up our sheep but now herds the hens into the barn in the evening.

Besides controlling the acreage of cats, stray dogs, or any human who may come to close to property lines he likes to sit in his favourite chair by the window to welcome all coming home for rest, relaxation and supper . GOD Bless You ELVIS!!!!!
