Annnnd…fail


I finished the spinning project I’ve been working on. Unfortunately, it was supposed to be black and brown yarn with BROWN beads. Now I have 250 yards of the wrong yarn, and no more Brittany or Tulip fiber to work with. I’m having one of those “can’t win” weeks.

Edit: I found a box of Brittany fiber in the closet, from last year, and Mom found some Tulip fiber that only needs to be carded. So I think we are going to be alright.

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

    I am just thinking that even though this is a custom order that they might just LOVE it with the black beads!!? It is so beautiful and sometimes the end result is even better than their “creative” ideas from when they ordered it…………………….

    • Well, upon much debate, it has been decided that I will NOT unply it, and that someone will indeed love it. A friend reminded me that I had an entire closet full of fiber from LAST year, and I think I’m going to scrounge together enough for the actual custom order.

      On a side note, marketing says custom is custom, and we would not have delivered the wrong order. I agree, though it does suck.

    I am also thinking it should be called La Vida Lobo Jewels?
