    Excellent… alpaca fans unite!!!

    Thanks for listing out the KAL’s. I really like how you drop in the photos of projects, and yarn. You really zoomed in on the blue that you ordered from Webs. They have great service, I order from them often. The last order I placed form their sale was mainly light weight yarn since I live in Texas, but that blue was tempting. The view from the room you recorded in and from your porch is amazing!!

    I forgot to mention the North Ronaldsay Yarn. I got interested in trying out the rare breeds because of Joanna’s podcast and went in search of some different kinds to use. I hadn’t found this one, but I can’t wait to try some of this too. Their story was interesting.

  4. Hey Vicki, Yeah WEBS amazes me. I love getting quality supplies at doable prices. I wouldn’t be such a junkie otherwise. You smart too. Ahhh. Really are you going to try the North Ronaldsay? What are some of your other rare breed favorites? Thanks for watching and enjoying.
