So, this past Saturday we went to the local Pecan Festival. We were expecting it to be all about Pecans, I mean it is in the name, but I was pleasently surprised to see this…

She’s spinning up the above Llama fur. I was a complete dunderhead and forgot to ask her name, but she was really nice! It was great because I was able to show T how the yarn I buy comes into being. She showed us how she sets it all up and how she plied it. But the best part is the little gift she gave T.

That’s real Llama fur, people. T played with it the whole time we were there! She kept “petting” it. It was her favorite thing in the world. That is until she won this…

That’s Flippey, our newest member. T won it in one of the games she played and named it herself. Flippey has taken up residence in a bowl in our kitchen. So far, so good, but we are just waiting for Treakle to try to make a Flippy snack.

    Hee! I love flippy! I won a fish the summer after my senior year of high school. Goldie lived for 12 years and outgrew 2 tanks before she went belly up. My mother actually froze her thinking I’d want to ‘say goodbye” when i got home at Christmas. Um…no.
