You wouldn’t believe it, but Block Island, RI is home to llamas…

And even an alpaca…

Now you might wonder how this is possible, but if you pay a visit to North Light Fibers, a working yarn and textile mini mill, all will become clear.  And since we’re speaking of yarn, keep in mind that it isn’t just for sweaters and mittens.  Meet Serafina the Ballerina my birthday bunny which was hand-knit for me this year by my sister.

    I am so touched that Serafina made it on your blog! She was a joy to make for you. Love, your sister.

      Thanks, Helen! Serafina is indeed a cutie…and I’m not even that into stuffed animals. But she’s now occupying a place of honor on our bed against the pillows. 🙂

      Hugs, Joana
