Wow I can't believe how long it has been since the last time I have posted on here. So much had gone on. Our oldest is now 6, if you can believe that and our youngest is 19 months old! Boy does the time fly. Most of my time is taken by my boys. Not only am I a SAHM I am also now school teacher as we are home schooling the oldest. He is currently doing 1st and 2nd grade work. :)
Also on the agenda is processing and spinning alpaca fleece for a local alpaca farmer. I thought that this would be a one time venture, but she was so pleased that she wants me to continue to do it for her every year!
Currently I am nurse to my 2 little guys as they both have the flu now. We have had a very bad year for sickness here. It all started in October when were were all at the KY Wool fest. We all ended up with a stomach bug and have been getting sick with everything that is going around since. I am hoping with the warmer weather will come the healing of our immune systems so we can finally be on the mend.
I have been knitting a few things here and there, but mostly been concentrating on spinning all that alpaca. It is like a bit of heaven getting to play with all that and get paid for it in the process. I am excited to see it all form the upcoming sheering!
Better get back to spinning. I am hoping to post more often as it has been far too long and I always enjoyed having my blog. I will leave you with a picture of some yummy alpaca batts. :)
