Greetings from an alpaca shearing

Yeah, so not a whole lot of knitting going on around here since the weather has improved. My daughter loves to spend all day outside, so I've been focusing my aesthetic impulses on gardens rather than socks.

But rest assured, I am almost done with L's sweater and will post about it as soon as it's finished.

In the meantime, I have some pictures from an alpaca shearing we visited this weekend. They are exquisitely delicate and intelligent looking animals. Unfortunately, they had to be strapped down during the shearings, so I guess they don't enjoy it too much. But after it was over, they seemed happy with their new haircuts.
