Isabella Garrity Riesing came into the world on Nov. 28th at 5:01 a.m. at St. John's Mercy Hospital in St. Louis.
I have been working on an alpaca throw since February 2009. I finally finished it and took it off of the tri-loom yesterday. A little slow, wouldn't you say?
Nevertheless -- Bella was wrapped in the alpaca blanket and slept "like a baby." It is a lovely grey and white creation -- courtesy of our Tonka, a silver grey male alpaca; and Maggie O'Brien, a white female alpaca. Both "donated" their fiber for the throw.
I say "thanks" to the folks who spun the fiber into yarn for me in exchange for free fiber of their own. Great job.
