Green for good measure
Katie's First Day



Mmmmmm.  It feels so good!  And smells so good!!  I can't stop feeling it and smelling it.  Eventually, I'll want to give it a little spin and knit it, but for now I'm content to sniff and fondle.  I've been carrying it everywhere -- and have it with me today.

This is 100% llama, undyed, and spun for me.  My brother and his wife gave me a gift certificate for a fiber farm -- Pine Knoll Llamas -- near their house for Christmas '07.  Last summer, on my way to visit Knitting Camp in Marshfield, I stopped to meet the owners.  I enjoyed a wonderful tour of their old farmhouse, Kathy's workspace and the farm, and had a nice visit with the llamas.  In yesterday's mail were yarn samples from the available fleeces, based on my choices last summer.

I can't tell you how thrilled I am -- perhaps you've picked up on it.  They are, from left to right, "Montego Bay, "Sister-Sister," and "Pfevor."  Montego Bay and Pfevor are from single fleeces, Sister-Sister is a combination of three llamas -- all sisters.  There's an early favorite.



They're all wonderful, but how could Sister-Sister not be at the top of your list!


That is pure fibery wonderfulness. I would be petting them all day.


What a great gift. Llama-llama-ding-dong!!


How great!!




Very, very cool gift! Beautiful colors.
