In Memory of:

ANDRE my first llama. Andre passed away suddenly during the summer of 2003. He was the most friendly and cuddly llama I have met. He loved going for walks!! I think about Andre frequently and miss him very much.




Beautiful Andre

Another FO.....

WTF!!! Three in a month...what is up with that!!

Here is a photo of the calorimetry I made for my daughter. I made it a bit narrower than normal and I like it alot better. I may have to just knit myself up another one.







I also learned how to put the sleeves on Brians sweater yesterday so hopefully I will have some knitting time this weekend. It would be a perfect weekend for it as the weather is suppose to be below zero all weekend and snowy....but we have to split wood again.....procrastination is one of our better traits!!!

Hi Kena, Nice job on the calorimetry. Have never seen them before, and the yarns you used are very cool looking. Hope you are keeping warm, it is cold, here, too.

In the beginning.....

there were two lambs, Moe and Baaxter. A friend heard I had a couple of lambs and needing to sell his sheep, said I needed more. Needless to say I ended up buying his Shetlands to add to my "fiber frenzy". Naturally this led to lambs in the spring!! Listening to the coyotes yelp one night, I thought I had better get a llama to protect those precious little lambs, and their families. I knew I was addicted!!

I fell in love with the llams's they are so regal! I kept "collecting" them, and before I knew it, I had a stud and was breeding. I quickly found that Shetland Sheep were not for me and I purchased more Border Leicesters, eventually I had a flock of about 30 sheep and 10 llama's. In 2004 I sold all but Moe, Baaxter, and two llama's (Estile and Socks), and moved. This was hard to do, but it had to be done.

I still have Moe, Baaxter, Estile and Socks, as well as Estile's two other children, Bahama Llama (Bomber) and Porter. Socks is expecting, the end of June, she is bred to a suri alpaca. Porter is half suri alpaca, also.
