Maranatha Alpaca Farm

Went to the local Alpaca Farm today for the first yearly Alpaca shearing. It was so much fun to see all the cute Alpacas. I also purchased my first roving. I signed up for their dying class and also got information on what could be wrong with the spinning wheel I borrowed from my friend. My friend let me borrow her Louet S-10 spinning wheel, but I couldn't get the yarn to wrap around the bobbin. Turns out I need to replace the drive band and tension band. If those fixes don't work they offered to have me bring the wheel over so they can take a look.
Next weekend I am going to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, I am so excited.

Gift knitting, gift knitting, and yes more gift knitting

I haven't been blogging, since honestly I can't talk about my knitting. Currently I am knitting a bunch of surprises for people. I swore I would get an early start so that it's stress free and then I have the other half of the year to knit for myself. I did finish another cardigan, an easy one the Shalom, I haven't been able to take a good picture. It was a very fast knit, took me about 5 days.
I am very excited to go to the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival in less than two weeks. I am going with my friend Pam and we will leave here Friday (I am driving so no car knitting for me) and will stay till Sunday.
Sorry about this boring post I just wanted to check in. Hopefully after the MDSW I will have some goodies to talk about.

Week 8 and 9 Delancey Cardigan KAL

I am finished!!! Yay with a couple mishaps I finally made.

Here is a close up of the buttons

And the back

It was a lot of fun to knit and I can see myself knit another one. I am glad I went down a needle size and a clothing size, it fits perfectly.
