Adopted a llama

Meet my adopted llama, Mamma. She just smells like a lavender patch, and eats nothing but purple grass. You can feed her all you want, she just loves it!

adopt your own virtual pet!

I'm sure many knitters dream of having their own sheep, llama or alpaca farm, but not be directly involved with the work required. My sister and I do! We'd love to have our own sheep farm in the country that would supply all the yarn we'd sell in our yarn shop in the city. Not realistic, but sure would be nice to have.

One of the things to do on my "when I'm on my severance package" list (still enjoying being unemployed) was to visit an alpaca, sheep, or llama farm for a day. I remember, quite a few years ago, my husband and I spent a weekend in a gourmet inn in Colingwood. He said had he known a $3 visit to a sheep farm would make me that happy, he wouldn't have spent the money on the inn. It was a fantastic day(and weekend too, thanks hubby) and I'd love to do it again!
