I was asked to post a picture of something I made from the orange roving I got Copper Moose. This is a hat I just finished. I am not sure what I will do with the rest of the yarn I have, maybe some fingerless gloves and a scarf to match but we shall see. Here is the pic. God Bless Dustin
I have been busy getting some hats knitted up for Christmas this year. I had a couple requests this year after they seen the ones I gave for presents last year.
Starting top left is Shetland with Angelina, next is Rambouillet Alpaca ear muff hat, and Rambouillet with bronze Angelina. Bottom left is my absolute favorite, brim is Cormo Angora blend and the body is Opal English Angora, lastly the brim is Coopworth and body is Chestnut Agouti Angora. Now I am working on a hat with the orange roving I had got from Copper Moose. God Bless Dustin
Yesterday my parents and I made the long trip up to Fenton MI to pick up a starter flock of Shetland sheep and a couple llamas. We got them from the lady who runs Kirkshire. She gave me the 4 llamas because her husband has passed away from cancer and needed to cut down on the amount of critters she was feeding.
The Ram is in the back a black and white Ilget he is a lamb, 2 moorit ewes one is a lamb and one a yearling and a black ewe lamb. They have been running with the ram all fall so could be bred as well, if so will be my very first spring with lambs.
This is a pic of the 3 female llamas. I am going to keep the 2 lighter colored llamas and the dark llama in the back is looking for a forever home. The one is the front is named Yo Momma LOL So now I have a Llama Gama and a Llama Yo Momma. Little female in the back I need to name yet.
This is a gelding named Bullet that is looking for a forever home as well. The other dark llama is his mom so it would be great if they could go together. I am asking $50 each to help with the cost of gas to MI and back. All in all we a great trip up there and back yesterday it just made for a very long day. The good Lord blessed me with amazing parents that went with me and Dad even done all the driving. Hope you enjoyed the pics God Bless Dustin.
Yesterday after I got off work I went to visit a near by Alpaca farm who was having a Christmas Open House. They are new to Alpacas having them for about a year now and are up to 10 Suri Alpacas. 4 of them are bred females they just picked up last weekend in Iowa. The Alpacas all looked very well cared for and the owners were very nice people as well. Here are some pics of the Alpacas I took while walking around the barn. They had a small shop where I picked up another hand woven rug, this one is for Mom's kitchen.
