Girl's day out at the farm?
Shitomi, Nao, Kazuko, and Taztko all came out for a visit on Monday to collect some farm fresh eggs. They told me that many Japanese dishes are prepared with raw eggs. They were excited about the prospect of getting farm fresh eggs. I gave them a tour of the chicken coop and then took them over to see the alpacas. We talked about how their fleece is processed and all of the wonderful things we can make from their fleece...scarves, shawls, hats, etc. The ladies were amazed an are interested in joining our Thursday knitting group to learn more! It's so wonderful to see others get excited about these amazing creatures. I just gained three new friends and hopefully, some new knitting partners! See how much fun you can have on a girl's day out?
