Kittens, Gardens, and Yarn
The three little kittens are good, all their eyes are now open, and they're starting to climb around a lot more! They still can't really walk though they do a wobbly crawl pretty well.
The roses are in bloom! The house has 8 rose bushes, all need some serious rose pruning maintenance and care, but they're blooming and beautiful. This flagstone patio garden area is pretty nice. I worked on it this weekend, I'm planning on using it for a nice herb and perennial garden area.
And, I couldn't resist. On Saturday we put in a little kitchen garden. Tomatoes, peppers and chiles, eggplant, zuchinni, cucumbers, squash and melon. Ah. I realized that in every house we've lived in I've put in a garden. I was a little sad thinking I wouldn't have one this year, but even though I didn't start these plants from seed and it was a little late, I think it will do well.
Handspun Llama! Two ply yarn...4 oz. About a worsted weight or a little lighter. Grays, greens, and blues.
The whole skein. Notice in the detail photo you can see some of the guard hairs. Even with the guard hairs, this llama yarn is pretty soft. The guard hair might make it itch as a scarf, but really it is some nice llama. Overall after spinning llama from the fiber fest, I have changed my previously biased opinion of llama fiber. I hadn't spun it before. I really do like this stuff.
