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.
