ahh, my baby alpaca.  this is all i have had time for between christmas and a busy new year weekend at degnarly (more on that later)…  i’m spinning it as fine as i can, with a bit of extra twist as i will ply it with some silk.

on wednesday we stopped by the salvation army after work.  my finds:

a basket for fiber and a really creepy model for my hats!

COMING TOMORROW: what you have all been waiting for – sofia, the tiniest little supermodel from cyprus, will be modelling ABC (alissa, buku, and corinne) babywear.  🙂 see previous post here and here.

’til then…

  1. FANTASTIC MODEL HEAD! I bought a wig model from the wig store but it is tiny. Yours looks like it will be a good representation of an actual head!!! I am so jealous. Your spinning looks FABULOUS. Keep it up!

    • jeanie! there was another head there. i should have bought them both and gave one to you. we go to the one on northern light by bostons and gci. it might still me there….. i don’t think styro mannequin heads are in very high demand. if i remember, i will stop by after work tomorrow.
