Okay, so I didn't end up getting around to the alpaca yesterday, but I *did* get some time in with the Strauch! If you'd like to see photos of the batts, I've posted them online at this link:
I'm hoping to have more fiber/yarn time this weekend, but we're apartment-hunting and I'll also probably start packing my things for the move. I'm hoping this is the last time I'm going to change locations for the next couple of years. I guess we'll see how it goes! I'm very excited for this move, though.
