Last week I had a bit of a knitting task !

It was a bit of a surprise present for my friend Anna, as it was her Birthday.

As she loves the Grey Alpacas, I decided to knit her something with this fleece. It was a bit of a mammoth task......but I managed to get it finished in time.

I started off with a hat, then I decided to carry on and knit a scarf........then as I had some wool left I decided to make a pair of hand warmers ! So in the end I had made a nice matching set.

The alpacas are all doing fine, we are on day 331 today for the girls and the weather has changed to slightly cooler with scattered shower.....and this is forecast for the weekend and for the early part of next week......typical...for shearing !.....great !!!

I'm just hoping that it won't be too cold......and miserable ....especially for my pending babies....after all that was the whole reason for changing the 'birthing clock' summer !

Does any one know where it has gone !!!!!
