Knitting Slump

April 10, 2008

We all get into knitting slumps. I cannot seem to finish anything. Of course I am not doing a whole lot of knitting, so knitting one, two or three rows a day does not get a project done. I just do not seem to have any time. I only have a half hour for lunch now, I use to have a full hour, so my knitting time during the day is less. I knit some at night, but even that has been less lately.

I have been doing a little spinning:

 

The North American Alpaca show was fun. I went to a seminar on geldings as fiber animals. It was given by Nancy Durst who owns a farm in Buxton, Maine. She only has geldings. It is a great idea for those of us who are not sure of the whole breeding, showing, competitive thing. I want fleece! Her farm is White Barn Meadows, www.whitebarnmeadows.com.

Our friends did very well in the show ring.

Here are a couple of fun pictures:

 

 

These kids were so cute. They were in a performance class. The alpaca was not being judged, their ability to show the animal was. All of them got blue ribbons. It was so fun to watch. The one with the biggest alpaca was 5 1/2 and knew more about his alpacas and the breed in general than some adult owners. His grandparents pens were right next to ours He was such a pip. (sorry the fiber pictures showed again, I have not figured out some of the changes to wordpress yet)

It was 60 degrees today. Snow is melting. My goldfish have emerged from hibernation. I think I even see some daffodils poking through. Yeah.
