"I'll buy you a Meatball Marinara from Subway if you'll wear your raccoon sweater." I did; I stooped to bribing Junior to wear a hand knit item to the recent Rhody Yarn Crawl. We visited Eneri Knits in Charlestown, RI where they had alpacas to entertain the kids. Truth be told, it was the idea that alpaca poop was for sale that fascinated them the most. "You never know who might be there - someone famous." was my impetus for the bribe. I have no idea why I thought that but I did and there was! A famous writer from Knitscene magazine and she put us on her blog, Knitting New England. Go see what a well behaved family I have (careful attention to the middle member) standing in front of the alpaca butts. Feel free to leave a comment there and tell her how I've made all you beige and teal lovers see the pink tinted light. Photo above is of the spring break strawberry pancakes that we made the other day.
