farm life, fun with fiber, personal life, rojo the llama -

I love phrases that mean something can be misread. I doubt anyone actually thinks I turned Rojo into a scarf, but you would be surprised at how many people are embarrassed to tell me they own an alpaca sweater - people sincerely believe you have to kill llamas and alpacas for their hair!
