a fall view
what does fall mean? This year is about my chilly toes. Well, it's about more than that, who wants to hear about the temperature of my toes for an entire blog post? It's also about that transformation from a green growing world in summer to a strange bare winterland. The picture I have here shows our tree fiery orange leaves through the window. As I type this a glance through the same window shows maybe a fourth of the leaves in the picture still hanging on. It's about change.
In the spirit of change, I've gathered some photos I took of the alpaca fiber we bought over the weekend! It was so fabulous to meet all of the beautiful friendly alpacas and their owners. I was so thrilled about it I forgot my camera in the car and got completely caught up in the experience. But, I took these photos after we brought it all home:
This is the two main bags of fiber out on our patio. The black is from Ben and the reddish-brown is from Jefe.
Here's a close-up on Jefe's fiber.
Poki wanted to make sure of the quality of Jefe's fiber. I had to stop her when she started digging. ;)
All this fiber will be transformed into yarn, by me, hopefully. I just have to wash the dust out and start learning to spin. I'll be posting my progress in the future. But since fall is about all kinds of change, I'll show you what I've been transforming my yarn stash into soon!
