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!!!!!
