Bailey is six months old today!!  How did that happen?

His fleece is getting quite long now, and messy!  He's changed a bit since this photo was taken :-

Mum, as usual, looks on adoringly :-

. . . or was it the carrots she'd spied?

They're all going to get a bit of a shock next week though as Rob is moving both babies away from their mothers.  They're both still feeding from them, but they really don't need it any more so they're going into a separate field with Aunty Hope.  Both mothers are quite thin at the moment, so it'll give them chance to build themselves up again.  Can't imagine it'll be popular though!

The blog has been silent again for a while.  Mainly because I've had no progress to show you.  My tweed sweater is sitting untouched, and the spinning isn't finished.  That's because Tammy (who lives at the alpaca farm) received an order for 600g of fine alpaca handspun.  That's quite a lot for her to spin, so I offered to do half of it.  So far I've finished three 75g balls, and have just started the fourth.  They're working out at about 16 wpi which, I think, is classed as light fingering weight.

I need to spin some colour after this!
