Friday was Spinning Day at the Wonder Why Alpaca Farm. I went a little early, because I like to check out the alpacas before I get all into socializing.
Well guess who else decided to show up a little early?

Technically, she was on time. But my birthday guess for her wasn't until like September 25th. So, yeah, very early according to my wager.
It was really amazing to see an hours old animal trying to get the hang of walking, nursing, and the whole world all at once. I am glad though that I missed the actual miracle of birth. It's just messy.
Baby alpacas are called cria. I always manage to call them baby crias. So really, I am saying baby-baby. But, you know, it's all love.
After the early show excitement, it was just time to hang out with the crew, knit, spin and eat.
There was also some defluffing going on. Wait, that may be the wrong word. All I know is fluff went in fluffy, and came out silky, shiny and ready to be spun. Which, as you know, is what I like.
So I spun, had fun with friends, saw a baby animal, and had a completely zombie free afternoon.
