Dear Noro…

I may have to break up with you.

Like a Bad Boy boyfriend, you tempt me with your charm and good looks and every time I break down and take you back, you behave for a while and then wham! You let me down.

I’ve put up with three (or more!) knots in one $12.00 skein and your random bits of orange that show up in my pink colourways. I think I’ve been very tolerant of the bits of floor sweepings and the slivers caused by random bits of wood and sticks, even the ones that made me bleed and cuss. Really Noro, really?

Your new thing is to just break randomly as I am throwing you over a needle?

You, Bad Boy, have tested my limits. There are other variagated yarns you know and they would be happy to have my sexy Karbonz running through them!

So. Best behave through the rest of the knitting on these mitts are I’ll be turfing you into the bin and no amount of silk, mohair blandishment will convince me otherwi… Ooh, pretty colours…

Maybe just… one… more… skein… 😉

National Alpaca Farm Days – Happening Today

As mentioned earlier here is a link to one of our local farms participating in “National Alpaca Farm Days“.

Silent Valley Alpaca was also at the Almonte Fibre Festival that I attended a couple weeks ago.

Did I mention I love alpaca?

Today is a gorgeous, sunny autumn day for a drive. Anyone local should go out for a visit!
