Happy beginnings

Hi everyone, Kirstin here again. Long time no post! Remember the baby hat and booties I made a little bit ago? Well, it seems they are getting some use! Everyone, meet Clark Andrew, the newest member of our extended-extended family.

I think the booties may border on silly they are so large, but the hat actually fits! Clark was born 5 1/2 weeks early, and we were expecting him to be somewhat early, so I modified the pattern to be smaller. Adding baby alpaca to Mikayla’s fiber for extra softness seems to have worked, as his momma Jess reports his skin isn’t irritated at all.


The Daisy Chain throw I made also found a home with Clark and his family (which gave us an excuse to visit the handsome little guy). It just gives me warm fuzzies to see things I made for people I love being used. Like in some small way, by giving gifts like this, pieces of ourselves become part of something larger and more awesome than we could ever be on our own.

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.

    OH goodness, this is the most precious post!! Jessica looks amazing, Clark is adorable, and the hat and booties fit perfectly!! I’m so glad the Daisy Chain throw found a home with Clark too! I bet it’s perfectly sized for him 🙂 Kirstin, your extended-extended family is so happy to have you and the Clip House Alpacas to make all of us such beautiful things. I wear mine almost every day!!! Hope to see you when I’m up in April for CWMA Spring Training.

    • He is adorable and Jess looks amazing. They are such a beautiful family. And I am so lucky to have you all as part of my extended-extended family. I just wouldn’t be the same without you!

      I may be in Baltimore for a training in April, but nothing is decided yet! Hopefully I’ll see you, though.
