Saturday 9/26/09 we went to Savanah Breeze’s Alpaca Days, we had a ball petting the alpaca Gabrielle and learing about the alpacas. Of course I couldn”t leave without  buying a fleece to clean and spin up.

The drive from Cedar Rapids was perfect.

We went to the Country store on Friday evening, I did very well at controlling my spending this time. I got a cormo fleece from Barnahrt Studios and 8 oz’s of Scottish Mule fleece from Frene Creek, along with some flax and other odds and end from Meilke’s.

I took a class on machine knitting from Rose Ver Vooren all day Saturday.  My head is still spinning from all the information.  She and her assistant Jody  were great teachers.
