You went to an alpaca show and all I got is a fake alpaca?

I went to the Great Western Alpaca Show and Denver Fiber Festival this morning. If I had to knit with only one yarn, it would be alpaca. So soft and luxurious. It's not a big group of vendors, but a lot of hand spinners, weavers, and dyers, so it was worth it. The vendor not only sold their yarn, they also sold finished products such as hats, socks, rugs, scarves, etc.  Lots of good ideas. I bought a little yarn, but I have to save up any dedicated yarn money for the Estes Park Wool Festival next month.

So I bought a little alpaca for Neko. I thought he could use a friend. So far he is not impressed.

Who are you?
Are you something to eat?
That's it! You're history!


  1. That is so cute. I'll bet he'd love it if you put a little catnip on it!! He sure is a cutie.

    I'm waiting for the Michigan Fiber Fest!! Can't walk much but I always want to go.
