Alpacas and cup cakes

Sam had a great time at Granny's with my brother and finally reappeared this afternoon after a little light lawn mowing.  That meant Carl and I could take a trip to Ashdale Alpacas.  I only had one pair of gloves to contribute to the knitting emporium as my baby blanket was rejected, being too small for even the smallest of babies.  Carl was desperate to get down there to see the progress Si has been making on the new barn.  I have to say that I have never seen such perfect blockwork in my life!  It will be one posh barn.  Irene also has a cup cake sideline and they are delicious - we brought some home and I had to photograph them before we ate them!
Finally, we had to wave goodbye as Irene masterfully organised her alpacas (the little one next to her is a dog!).


  1. Sometimes some people are just too talented...I think a dolls blanket is a really good idea myself!!:))
