llama face!

The morning we left for Big Bend National Park this past December, my sister Elizabeth's fiancé, Chris Joseph, gave me and my mother three, big black bags full of llama wool.

In February or so, we skirted a bag of the wool, and a few days later, I started spinning some. I plied it, washed it, and started knitting it. I didn't spin very much, probably about ten yards when it was plied, but it made a little 3x4 swatch.

I haven't blocked it yet, so the edges are all curling up, but once it's blocked, it'll lie straight in a little rectangle. It is SO soft and beautiful. I can't wait to make something more impressive than a swatch!
