So here's Call Me Michelle, posing elegantly in her alpaca gear, courtesy of Alpaca Lily, whom we met at the farm, and whose picture appears on the tag that came with the yarn.
Protesting that we're in the middle of a heatwave, why get into cosy alpaca gear, she was mollified when I reminded her that fashion shoots always take place in the opposite season from the clothes. Models in heavy winter gear are usually passing out from the heat in July, and bathing suits are organized to be shot in midwinter, when disguising goose bumps is an issue.
Can't believe how long it took me to finish this item, but I feel better now that it's done. My inner compulsive can now pipe down. But now Call Me Michelle is wondering if I have enough yarn left for a nice hat...for her, that is.
