The light
is soft in the Surprise Lilies

and the cone flowers.

The light seems to bounce about in the zinnias

and the bee balm.

The Gold Finches have a light of their own.

I have finished knitting my first yarn from Flora,
the Paco-Vicuna, I visited last month.

I designed a simple garter stitch scarf for my friend.
The bow detail is the tail from when I casted on my first stitches.
I am knitting another Flora scarf for me.
I once again will be knitting the simple plain stitch.
I am interesting in showing Flora's fiber
not how cleaver I am with the knitting needles!
The garter stitch scarves will hold up nicely.

The light seems to bounce from the yarn.
The yarn so soft.
When I walk this Autumn I will be warmed by Flora.
I will be connected with my friend in England.

Over the weekend we visited a Paco-Vicuna Ranch.
I was looking for fiber.
I found heaven.

This is Athena.
She is a premier plus animal with a beautiful fleece.
I shall be getting some of her next shearing.

A new cria, Blaze, only three weeks old.

So cute and soft.

I bought 4.5 oz of Flora's yarn.

This will get me started.

I bought the fingerling weight.
Exquisite yarn for a new knitter.

I have partnered with Hickory Ridge Farms.

I only want to knit Paco-Vicuna wool.
It is like knitting with cloud fiber.
It is soft.
It is devine.
