all sorts of critters running around. The alpacas were too far for me to get close.
Which leads to The Naked Sheep
Isn’t all that alpaca lovely? Fine 2-ply, 3-ply, aran weight. The owner also carries breed specific yarns from several local wool growers.
I was good and bought only a little to come home with me.
Now, you might be wondering how I managed to justify this on a work day. Well, as it happens, The Naked Sheep is only 15 km beyond RAF Croughton. Considering that I am entitled to goof off on a lunch time (yah, all right – a Croughton trip is a detour without frolic) it just seemed like a good idea.
Getting back around 1600, it seemed most sensible to attempt to keep warm in front of the electric fire. Split my time between the garter squares cardigan (both shoulders complete, side seams closed and the lower edge started)
Giving my hands a break for a while, I finished up the first ball on the vest front.
The Divorce Party – Laura Dave. Bought on sale from Audiobookstand, I pulled this one out of the stack. Covering the interactions of the main players over the course of one day, the author unobtrusively weaves in background while moving the plot forward. I wound up thinking about several of the main themes after I had finished; which makes it a worth while read and not fluff.
