Sneak Peek

In between baby alpacas being born and Liz and Nick's baby being born, we have been busy getting the farm ready for the weekend.

Here is a sneak peek to what you can find in our store.

Please join us for National Alpaca Farm Day
this weekend, Saturday and Sunday 10-4
Our website has directions

Roving for spinners. This is a blend of our alpaca's fleece.

 Hand spun yarn for sale.

 Hand made hats, sweaters, shawls, cowls and more.
All items are one of a kind, so once it's gone...that's it!

 Fine alpaca woven scarves. HEAVEN!!! They are so nice and light that you can
wear them all year round.

MomMom's hutch is full of new toys!!! 

Yarn is stocked! 

Great selection of natural color baby alpaca yarn, our Farm Yarn and of course 
Liz's beautiful hand dyed yarn. Alpaca, Merino, Cotton. Must see! Great gift for your knitting friends
or treat for yourself. You can never have too much yarn. Right?!

Hats! All kinds...furry ones, ski hats, slouch hats, you want it, we got it!
Scarves, alpaca puppets, ear warmers....

The BEST blanket you will ever own.
It keeps you warm when it's freezing out and it keeps you the perfect temperature
when it's not. We have one and every night we all fight for it.
Those fuzzy things at the top are slippers. How funny are they?!

Mittens, fingerless gloves, ponchos, sweaters, shawls, dresses, hats.
Most of this is brand new. Everything is made with alpaca yarn.

There is more to see, but this should give you a good idea of what to expect.

And of course we have our best seller....
the item that every person should own.


Hope to see you this weekend!

Come by and meet our herd. They're excited to see you.

Yarn Along

Is it Wednesday again? Weeks fly by don't they?

I have been posting a lot knitting pictures lately, so I only have one little hat to share today.
It's a toddler sized hat knitted in 100% baby alpaca. 
It's a beautiful rose gray color and oh so soft.

The hat will be for sale this weekend at the farm.

I'm calling it the "Acorn" hat.

I have been knitting so much lately that my reading has been pushed aside...(sigh)
I miss my book. Stilllllll reading Cutting For Stone. I really need to finish it!

Have a great day and don't forget to check out all the fun yarn alongs at Ginny's page.

Oh...and check this out!
Thank you to Hulafrog for making our farm the Top Pick for things to do with your kids this weekend! They chose us and did a great write up. Thanks Hulafrog!!
Just a reminder, National Alpaca Farm Day is this weekend. That means most alpaca farms will be open to the public across the United States. We'll be open 10-4 each day.

Happy Knitting and Happy Fall Y'All

Yarn Along

Happy Wednesday!

Last week I was posting and Liz was in labor. Well, this week, we are blessed to have the most adorable little baby boy in our family. If you haven't already, check out my recent posts and enjoy the pictures of this little guy. He is sooo cute. And notice the beautiful blanket he is swaddled in. Liz crocheted it with her own hand-dyed alpaca yarn and gray baby alpaca yarn. So sweet. Maybe I'll have her link up some day with the pattern for anyone that crochets.

Here is my more recent knitting/reading endeavors.

I'm still reading Cutting For Stone. I love it, just don't have much time to sit and read. It's a the kind of book that you really need to sit and have a long time to read at once. My crazy 14 month old doesn't think that is a very good idea. Ho Hum.

Received two new magazines in the mail today, so that will be my reading as of today.
I just started this little Heartwarmer shawl in rose grey baby alpaca yarn.
So sweet. I have the perfect buttons to go with it when I'm done.

I finished up the purple beret from the Purl Bee website. That site is awesome. I wish I had time to make everything on it.  This hat was easy. Took a little long for me because it was done on small needles, but I'm happy with how it came out. It doesn't look very good on me, but I can see it on someone with short hair. 

Ravelry link here
The yarn is alpaca finger weight hand dyed by Liz. The yarn is for sale at our farm.

And a simple baby hat. It's a  6-12 month size. Knitted with white and gray baby alpaca yarn. I'm going to see if Liz can crochet a flower for it. I have a fun button I would like to put in the middle of it to jazz it up.  This hat will be for sale on our Farm Days, Sept 29th and 30th.
 So soft and comfy for baby.

Don't forget to check out all the other knitter's work over at Ginny's blog.

Happy Knitting!
