Spring??

It is snowing again this morning.  I have had just about enough of winter. Okay, we barely have any snow on the ground so I shouldn't complain.  I just talked with the ladies at Blue Sky Alpacas (they are located in Minnesota) and they have 34" of snow on the ground.  That is serious snow.

Why was I talking to Blue Sky?  There are new patterns and yarns and I just ordered them.  They should be here the beginning of January.  Because it is dreary out today I am going to share happy, pretty pictures with you to cheer you up.

I added in the pictures, cutting and pasting descriptions from the Blue Sky Alpacas and Spud & Chloe websites.  Now I can't add to the bottom of my post and have it display in the proper font.  I guess that means that this post is done for today.  :)  I'm going to try and finish Aldred this afternoon.  6 more rows (long rows) to go.
