I know the alpaca that made my yarn

At Stitches, My Guy and I stopped by this booth run by alpaca farmers.  A husband and wife, really nice folks.  They have 80 alpacas (80!) on their farm.  They do it all, from raising them to spinning yarn.  They were running a slideshow with pictures of their farm and the different alpacas.  They’re the cutest things.  Makes me want one for a pet.

I bought some lace weight yarn in a lovely shade of pink and the wife was able to show me a picture of the alpaca it came from – I think his name was Sunny.  How cool is that? 

I’m currently knitting a travelling fern lace scarf, a pattern I found on Ravelry.  Love that site.
