NO JOKE! This Thursday October 30th at the Barnes & Noble in Market Fair Mall in Princeton NJ, I will be joined by two lovely alpaca for a Shear Spirit book signing. My 4 legged friends will arrive around 6 pm and I'll be on at 7. They're pettable, attractive and well behaved-- and I'll be friendly too. Please stop by--if only to see how this all works out.
On that subject, I'm going back a couple weeks to New Mexico, where Joan & I stayed at Victory Ranch, commuting through the mountain pass to the Taos Wool Festival. On a trip packed with wonderful moments, one morning at the ranch was especially spectacular. I got up early to go out with the alpaca, hoping to get a photo that would reenact the lineup shot in the book but with the blue sky and snowing mountain top that early October in Mora provided.
Then I went and hung out with he crias.
So sweet. A while later we were joined by Cathy & Donna, blogging friends we'd met the day before at the festival, they'd trekked out to the ranch to , ahem, cough, visit the shop and pet the alpaca. If you keep an eye on Cathy's blog, there should be some gorgeous evidence of her visit coming up in FO's sometime soon. That Cat has good taste in yarn. Just an observation.
