Silk Creek Alpacas to visit with Bil and Julia, see all the alpacas, and most importantly, gaze with envy on the new fleece picker and electric drum carder. I also spun one of the batt's on Julia's spinning wheel, which is lovely (an Ashford, that Julia got for pennies!). There was a reporter from a local news station there too so my spinning hands might even be on television. If so, I'll post a link here.
This handsome fellow is Atom, whom we are going to 'adopt' into our family. He's a fiber boy, meaning he won't be a breeder but he has lovely fleece and white to boot. So he'll be a good companion alpaca for our future breeding boy...we're thinking ahead a few years to starting our own alpaca farm.
This is the official end of the summer for me...classes start next week. I'm working on a better attitude for fall term. Hope I succeed!
