Did you notice? DID YOU??

I changed the background and layout of the blog.

Yes, it is eye-searing fall leaves. I'll have it up for a month or so til I replace it with a really pretty winter scene. You'll get used to the brightness, I promise (well, I guess I can't promise that).

So my summer is officially over as classes start Monday. I'm all set for the first day (and probably the first week) of classes (although I should have made sure I knew where my book was. I should dash in and check that out today).

Yesterday we had Calypso's first halter lesson. Every so often you need to put an alpaca on a halter--for breeding purposes, for shearing, for transportation. The first step is to get them used to the halter on their face, without a lead.

We put Tinkerbell in a halter and on a lead and put a little halter (SO CUTE) on Calypso and went for a little walk. He was fine and patient with us putting on the halter. He will probably buck a little when the lead goes on but so far so good.

I finished the dots scarf and now it is blocking:

I love how this looks but the kitting was a bit hard on my hands. Knitting the dots was a bit time consuming and kind of ending up hurting my fingers. But hooray for another wonderful Casapinka pattern.

Of course I noticed! It's beautiful.
Your adventures with alpacas are so much fun to follow!
