Surprise!

I was met at the door yesterday morning by the post man who handed me a parcel. I hadn't ordered anything and was quite puzzled by the box. There is only one way to find out what is in a closed box and that is to open it!


And here is what I found! A fleece alpaca blanket from baby Felicity, a sample from baby Desdemona, and a sample of baby llama butt. As well as a lazy kate! It was from the Alpaca Spinner in the UK, and I could only think of one person that would send me fleece from the UK. My sister Nicole. A quick e-mail confirmed that she was the generous giver of this lovely bit of wonder!

So thank you so much Nicole! It really helped brighten up a rather dreary January.

I'm sorry: "baby llama butt?" Umm... sounds kinda creepy. Would you care to explain, for those of us who're apparently out of the loop?

It is good to see what you actually got. Linzi, the very helpful woman at the Alpaca Spinner, figured out that it would be much cheaper for her to post it directly from her place than for her to send it to me to forward onto you. I should add that the alpaca photos you can see on the packages are the actual alpacas from which the fleece has come. Thanks to Linzi for adding in Desdemona and the llama as an extra! I look forward to seeing what this all gets transformed into.
