Alpaca Yarn and Paying it Forward

This post has some serious eye candy on it! Here is the skein of Alpaca named Joaquin that I spun for Squire Creek Ranch. This skein is 3 oz-382 yards(approx). It's a slightly off white color.

This photo is of both the Emilio skein and the Joaquin skein swirled together. They really compliment each other.

And then there is do you not pet her?!

For some reason, If I pull out the black background and turn on the light...she's all over it wanting to help model the yarn. I loved this picture and had to share it with you.
So that's another finished object for the posting! I currently have nothing on the wheel as I can't decide which bag o stuff to spin next and I've cast on for a pair of fuzzy feet slippers which I should be able to complete this week.
Paying it forward
We all know how sloooow I am at completing stuff sometimes, but even I thought I could complete this. I mean really......I have 365 days! I'm stealing this word for word from Cindy's blog, hence the quotes.
"I will send a handmade gift to 3 random people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it within 365 days, that is my promise! The only thing you have to do if you like, is in return pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog."
PS...that's 365 days from you leaving the comment on this blog. Ready? Set? Comment!( ahem, meaning....let me know if you want to be a part of the exchange!)

What a sweet kitty. Mine just come and haul off the subjects of my photos. And, the alpaca? Gorgeous. You should be so proud.

Wow, I didn't know that you spun too. The yarn is super. I love it, lucky you. I am so allergic to wool that when I tried spinning I sneezed and my eyes ran the whole time..sigh...Your kitty is sweet. Does he get along with Tucker? I love the pay it forwatd. I posted it on my blog too. Have a good day.
