I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Alpacas in Gilroy, Shekinah's Alpacas

The CGOA Men Who Crochet Oakland Chapter took a field trip to an Alpaca Farm in California. Shekina's Alpacas in Gilroy where we got a warm welcome by the Owner and the herd.

Some of the alpacas were very friendly and curious about us, men and women who arrived for the visit.
Others wanted to be pet and fed.
This one wanted to be fed all the time, but was graciously posing for our camera constantly.
I got some beautiful extremely soft roving. I want to make dk weight yarn or worsted, we shall see if my new spindles have the magic ingredient that I am looking for.

This yarn is like pitch black, so beautiful, I have been looking for such a yarn for some time now. I came within budget, actually 7 dollars under lol!
Thanks for stopping by!
