An update . . . Clucky came home last week after spending 26 days in the NICU. He is doing great! He's still pretty tiny weighing only 4 lbs. 3 oz.
Last weekend was the Minnesota Alpaca Expo. This year we did not show any of our animals. We thought about showing Fenway, but with me due 3 weeks after the expo we decided to sit this year out. Thank goodness we did with the baby coming 7 weeks early, and Fenway caught a parasite bug the week of the expo and wasn't doing so hot. Thankfully, Fenway has recovered nicely.
I had entered three items in the Fiber Arts competition at the Expo and won three first place ribbons! I made a hat, a scarf, and a stuffed alpaca that we have named "Sven".
|Sven - 1st place at the Expo|
The hat and scarf will most likely be offered at some point in our Etsy shop as made to order items.
|Cable Earflap Hat & matching scarf - 1st place at the Expo|
This winter I also tried my hand at making a couple of hats with alpacas on them. I like the prototypes - the beige and orange hat for Brian, and the multicolored one for me. These may become offerings in the Etsy shop as well.

|Made for me!|
Have a great weekend!
