I had forgotten that the Alpaca Festival was this weekend until someone mentioned it yesterday afternoon. I'm glad they did, I would have felt bad if I had missed it. I got up bright and early and went down there this morning. I usually go on Saturday and there are a lot of folks around and the animals are wicked skittish, but this morning was really quiet and I got plenty of alpaca kisses and love. It was wonderful. I visited each and every alpaca and then watched the judging for a bit. I went to the vendor area but stayed true to my vow to not buy fleece/yarn this year. I had to make a 2 skein exception recently to make a project that someone asked specifically for, but as of today-May 1st, I haven't bought anything fibery!
To top it all off, I finished a Molly Doodle. (Click to biggify for detail. Finally! One I'm happy with!)
And gave myself a snazzy Mollydoodle manicure.
There just aren't enough hours in the day around here lately!
I'll leave you with pics of some of the cuties I got to commune with this morning...
Love the punk hairdo. He was a real 'party animal'.
Doesn't the one of the right look like a white alpaca with a brown hooded coat on?
Here's looking at you.
This is the 'Push Me Pull Me' from Dr. Doolittle.
What have YOU been up to?
