I hope this falls under the General Knitting topics cause I want to shout it from the rooftops!! Just Kidding, but it was fun. DH and I were bored yesterday so we drove 45 mintues out of our way to eat some Apple Pie. I know, we're odd people, but it was the best apple pie and it cost a pretty penny too.
Anyway we, of course, took the long way home since we had nothing to do and as DH is driving around a corner I see a sign that says 'Alpaca Farm Open to public' and under that was the word YARN. So we had to turn around and see the yarn, ahem, I mean Alpacas. :teehee: I've never seen an Alpaca up close in my life, let alone touch one. OH. MY. GOD. Talk about soft. And the baby?!?!?! OH. MY. GOD. I've never felt something as soft as that baby alpaca. They were so neat to see and touch and one of them didn't like me standing by the fence and got that look in his eye, he was gonna spit! The farmer shushed him and I walked away. :teehee: Then after we talked with him for a long time we went to find his wife and she took us in her house.
We are complete strangers and she took us in her house! Who does that anymore these days?? I couldn't believe it, she was so nice to us and she had quite a bit of yarn - all Alpaca of course, such beautiful colors. So soft, oy vey. And they were on sale to boot!! It was a good day. So if you ever come upon an Alpaca farm, I suggest you stop and ask if you can pet them, you'll never forget it as long as you live.
