Today was my dad's birthday, and we went to a lavender farm and an alpaca farm! The alpaca farm was having it's annual farm day where they let people visit their alpacas and they also have yarn and roving for sale. I don't normally buy yarn impulsively, I usually buy it when I have a project in mind, but the yarn was so soft and gorgeous, I just had to get some. I got 4.7 ounces of this worsted/heavy worsted black and grey twist:
4.8 ounces (total) of this gorgeous medium rose grey fingering weight, which will make a beautiful pair of socks:
And 8 ounces, about 450 yards, of super amazingly soft baby alpaca. It's from their cute little copper brown baby alpaca named Penny Candy!
And this is the best part, I got to hang out with Penny Candy! Here we are:
It was really cool to see the alpaca that my yarn came from, I let her know I appreciate the beautiful fiber I got from her :)
We also picked lavender, which was so fun and so pretty smelling
So it was a very fun day! I hope you are all having a great weekend!
