5R Alpaca farm. It’s a good thing that I get together with other people and use my CSM (Circular Sock Machine) because I never seem to get around to it at home. You’d think that with all the sock yarn that I’ve accumulated that I would be cranking all the time! And you’d think that I would have used some of that stash to make these socks wouldn’t you. Oh, no. I “needed” alpaca sock yarn to make socks at a demo on an alpaca farm and since I couldn’t remember (or count on finding) if I had alpaca sock yarn already I had to buy some new. One good thing – they never made it to the stash – here they are as socks and good warm ones too. They kept my feet warm during that cold scooter ride.
Too bad the rest of me didn’t stay warm too! Might have to invest in some wind pants. I did really enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a warm bath when I got home, both things that you just don’t do in the summer. I guess Fall and Winter will be all right.
