Alpaca ma bags

Sorry!

In amongst all the hectic to-ing and fro-ing that is the run up to Christmas, a little slice of me-time.

A chance to spend a morning learning a new craft and “interacting” with Alpacas.

Who could resist?

So this morning saw me and Tracey (hi Tracey!) heading out to Toft Alpaca for a workshop that would teach us how to crochet a snowflake decoration.

With hindsight a workshop that would “teach us how to crochet” might have been a better bet given that neither of us had picked up a crochet hook before today.

The workshop space is fantastic

Our crochet skills less so

Can you tell what it is yet?

But it was so nice to get away from it all for a few hours

(Hello again Tracey!)

have a laugh, and meet some really nice ladies (who were all demon crocheters and were very generous in sharing their expertise and putting right some of the messes I made with the crochet).

Even the alpacas were quite cute in a slightly scary don’t get too close sort of way

Did you know there are only 2 varieties of alpaca in the world? This is one of them.

And this is the other.

And as for my snowflake?

I can’t help thinking I was following an alternative pattern for crocheted seaweed.
