The chill is in the air and it's time to wear alpaca!

Hand-warmers

Hand-warmers

Am I sorry that summer has come to an end on MaRS? Not really. The excitement of new crias running in the pastures, and farm visits are the highlights of the year, but summer is also the time to work on fence lines and tackle the farm to-do list. I think fall is probably my favorite season of the year. It's the time of year to enjoy all that you've worked hard to accomplish before the cold of mid-winter sets in. It's the time of year I find to be the most creative.

The evening hours are occupied with new projects and getting creative with alpaca. So far I've tried my hand at dying some of our natural alpaca yarns, and started knitting inventory for gift giving and the winter months. Baby beanies, adult hats, scarves, and now hand-warmers are all finding their place on my needles.

Also new are the Paca Pillows I've sewn up for the pampered pet. I've created pet beds that have a removable, washable cover with an inner pillow filled with alpaca fiber. They are sized to fit most standard crates.

What's next? Felting.
