On my first trip to Martha's Vineyard, Keith and I took our rented moped (!) to the Island Alpaca Farm. There was a baby less than one week old! The $5 entrance fee can be used as a discount in the farm store. There were signs up looking for local knitters to make products for the store... Once my backlog of projects (*cough* pals housewarming presents among other things) is shorter I'll have to look into it more.
Keith bought me a skein made from the alpacas that we visited that drizzly day. The label has picture of the animals whose wool became my yarn. I need a very special project for this skein. Any suggestions?
