Episode 74: The Alpaca Loom Outing

Laundry renovations continue.
There is a blog post about our visit to the Home of Hope as part of the KFC Add hope program
Rachel had a great scout adventure camp
The Geek and I took the boys to Hobby-X it was nice to look around, I need more hours in the day to do all the hobbies that I saw. The boys were really good and I managed to get yarn from Gina’s Natural Yarn shop – which I can’t show you as they are gifts and then I got yarn from Carle at Nurturing Fibres

Mo Sock 40% Merino, 40% kid mohair, 30% Nylon for The Geek
Eco Fusion in Cobblestone 50% Bamboo Viscose and 50% Cotton to make a Volstruis cowl for my sister
Eco Bamboo 100% Bamboo Viscose in Sunkissed Coral colour which was a gift from Carle

Carle kindly gave us a beautiful Giveaway of 3 Skeins of Hand-Painted Merino Lace Singles to make her Abalone shawl. Check out the group for details of the Giveaway

We had an exciting visit to The Alpaca Loom lots of pictures of us riding the dromedaries and the cute alpacas in the podcast. It was a wonderful visit and I am sure we will be back to visit soon. Rachel got some lovely soft Alpaca to spin.

Pippin is sporting a new Bandana from Pawfect Pack which has great pet accessories.
