Hi Knitters,
Today is very cold here in Wis. -11 when we got up at 6:30 AM. They predicted terribly cold wind chills, but it is not as windy as they said, thank goodness! Hope you are all warm and cozy knitting today.

Hello fellow alpaca farmer,
Your freezing cold weather has headed our way. We have an alpaca farm in Weare, NH, home to 15 right now. As I look out to the barn they are happily munching on hay and are covered with at least 3 inches of snow. We both know how warm and toasty they are underneath all that fiber!
Regards,
Jo

I finished my first alpaca project just before Christmas -- a basic pullover sweater made from Cascade Yarns Baby Alpaca. It was a joy to knit with, such a wonderful feel! So warm! It was like having a blanket on my lap that grew larger as I knit more. Alpaca is incredibly warm and the sweater can be used without a coat down to about 40deg F... not nearly warm enough for you, now, though!

I am on the gulf coast in Alabama and it is cold here, too. 29 degrees this morning. With the humidity and wind it makes me feel like I am back home in Illinois. Ha. I know this is not really cold when you consider that it was 11 below at home but I must like to complain!

I am trying out different yarns this year, and bought three skeins of soy/cotton. What to make? Socks, with dual cables up the sock front. I try small projects with new yarns to see if I like to work with them enough to make it through a large project. Just started on heel #1 last night.

Hi Everyone,

I just found and joined your group today. I live in central Indiana, USA.

It is very cold here right now and I am ready for warm weather.

I have been busy organizing all of my types of crafts that I enjoy making.

I hope to meet some new friends on here. Happy Knitting!

It was -35 in Mackinaw "valley" this morning at 6:40am, warmed to a balmy 8 with sun this afternoon, and currently at -1 now at 11:12pm. They are claiming heat wave for us by Tuesday nite, CAN'T WAIT... I currently have a "spring greens" garden growing on the southern windowsill, which can be harvested about every 2-4 days depending on what the cat doesn't destroy during the nite...

We have an alpaca farm and my favorite part of the experience is the gorgoeus yarn that you just have to touch. I participate in local Farmer's Markets and love to interact with knitters who appreciate the fiber. I'm just a beginner knitter, but find it very soothing to work with alpaca on bamboo kneedles.
