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...
I'm going through my closet, getting rid of things that don't fit or I no longer like. I have a huge pile of sweaters that need to be stored for the winter, and I decided I'd do the knitterly thing and get them all tidy so I can wear them right away come fall.
Here are my 5 steps for getting sweaters ready for summer hibernation.
Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home.
