My camera is back… and so is my sister!
And she brought back 17 – SEVENTEEN! Kilos! of Alpaca Yarn
One of the cones is MINE!
Here are some of her photos from Peru. Look closely you may see a couple of the sweaters that we sent down.
And they “loved” the art supplies!
These little girls were adorable and quite smitten with their art supplies.

Now for the contest announcement that I am sure you have all been waiting for.
and the winners are…..
First Sweater turned in goes to Amber – Amber you have won one of Cindy’s scarves.
The most hand knitted items prize goes to Judy – you can pick if you want some hand dyed yarn, or if you would prefer some hand dyed roving (let me know)
the random name picked out of the hat… goes to Gerry! Cindy has some of her hand dyed cotton for you since we know you love cotton yarn.
We added another prize winner – only because we thought it deserved one. The prize is for completing the sweater at the last possible moment and of course this goes to Lucia! Lucia you can pick either hand-painted yarn or my hand-dyed roving.
We want to thank all of you who participated in this little contest.
Cindy will be guest blogging her trip report soon. She had a great time, except maybe for the food…
Roasted Guinea Pig anyone?
