Don't tell John but this is what I made him for Christmas. The first picture is a pair of sheep's wool mixed with angora mittens that are hand dye, hand spun, and hand knit. The orange flecks are the sheeps wool. They turned our really nice.
These are a pair of hand knit socks made of wool, alpaca, and nylon.

Fortunately, Bree isn't too vain to show you what she looks like under all that 'hair and make-up.'

Me, Betty, and Chris.
What a gorgeous color.
This is my favorite natural color to spin. So pretty.
Look at those furnishings! Chu's Stewart wants more food.
Chu's Nolan. This handsome flirty little boy won Best of Breed!
Today John and I drove down to Louisville, KY to the rabbit convention. Just imagine 23,000 plus rabbits in one show! It was nice to visit with rabbit friends and see the competion.

After I carded it out and spun a ply it's beginning to look like something that resembles yarn.

Annette, myself, and Lisa who are also my fellow rabbit show friends.
A curious alpaca. Isn't he cute?? No, I didn't buy him.
This is one of my weakness'. A rainbow of potential projects in the form of many hanks of yarn. I resisted the urge to buy anymore sock yarn as there was A LOT of that here.
I behaved myself for the most part not buying too much:)

This is a Suri alpaca. It has a more silky texture to it's fiber. The rest of the alpacas were huacaya alpacas that had a more sheeplike texture, but still very soft. Not nearly as soft as my rabbits but softer than most wool.
Look at all the alpacas!!
A mom and her 3 day old baby.
The mom keeps a close eye on her baby.
This is a baby making date. It's not very romantic.
Even though this female alpaca has a 3 week old baby she is ready to be bred again. She will be pregnant for 344 days.
