Annabelle was a little over a month overdue with her Cria from Guns'N'Roses a famous herdsire on the west coast. We were looking forward to welcoming him to the world. Unfortunately he was breached in the womb and we were unable to save him. My cousin from New York was out visiting our ranch with her cute little 7 year old daughter. We were so much hoping to have a cute little baby alpaca waiting for her when she arrived but things didn't turn out as planned. Later that night she drew this imressive drawing (especially for 7 year old!) with Pocohantas asking her daughter Annabelle if she was alright and a tear coming from Annie's eye to show the sadness of her loss. I think this drawing from little Lison says it all...
There's nothing like a pair of handknit socks. You can use gorgeous sock yarn, choose your stitch pattern, and take them with you wherever you go. One thing I've learned over the years is how to customize socks to fit my feet, and I like a rounded toe. It's important for me because my feet are fairly straight across the toes, and a pointy toe just ends up flopping around empty.
Kelley likes a rounded toe, too, and she's developed a recipe for making them for her toe-up socks. She creates her rounded toe by spreading out the increases, separating them with a growing number of knit rounds in-between.
