Kathy told me to be careful of the coyotes up here, but yesterday I saw some alpacas! The Northern Illinois Alpaca show was at the Lake County Fairgrounds over the weekend, so I stopped in for a bit. There were lots of alpacas, some in pens, some being led around on leashes. They were beautiful, and so soft. In a separate building were some vendors with (guess what?) yarn! And also with coats, sweaters, socks, etc. made from alpaca yarn. There really wasn't too much yarn, and none of it called to me, so none came home with me. It was fun to see the alpacas, though.
