I went on a lovely road trip with my friends, Linda and Cindi last Wednesday. I came down with a cold when I got home so haven't had time to post any pictures. Now, I'm feeling better but my poor mother, Helen got a much worse dose of it. She's still under the weather but getting a little better.
The first stop we made was just outside of Stirling, Ontario at Amazing Graze Alpacas where we received a warm welcome from Marj, even in the pouring rain. She was even willing to take us out to the paddocks so we could visit the alpacas. We loved it!
Her basement is like Aladdin's cave with jewelled skeins of alpaca...
It is so soft...all I've done so far is pet my wool.
This is the great stash of wool I got at Amazing Graze.
In the bag is "roving" because I want to learn how to make those wonderful Newfoundland mittens.
If you are in southern Ontario and you're a knitter, make sure to give Marj a call to plan a visit. If you can't make it in person, check out her website....I'm sure you won't be able to resist.
