Look at what I made!
I finished my Quill!!! I love it so much. I made with 100% alpaca. I bought the yarn at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. I got it for a great price. The yarn was a close out so I only had a few colors to pick from. They were not all my first choice, but I love how it turned out. The body of the shawl is made out of rose gray alpaca (that color is one of my favorites). My parents have a rose gray breeding program going on at their alpaca farm. I tried to get Smokey their rose gray herdsire to come over and check it out, but he seemed more interested in my camera on the tripod.
I really should have had my cell phone to take a pictures of all the alpacas gathered around my camera and tripod. It was like they were the ones taking the pictures (but really I was with my little remote).
Little Miss Jatoba was a little more interested in helping me out with my pictures. She must have thought my remote was a carrot. She is such a sweet alpaca.
Miss Aponi wanted to come closer, but those pesky toddler boys were rough housing too much behind her and it was just to distracting for her.
Sweet Lily I could tell wanted to get in a picture with me, but then she got distracted by my boys whining that they wanted to go home.
So there is my Quill. I loved working on it and thanks for all the encouragement!
