A Designer Scarf

This is Angora yarn with natural beige and dyed purple wool.

Carolyn bought two skeins of the beige/purple yarn and decided to combine it with eyelash yarn.

The combination gives an interesting texture and look.

At the Portola Valley show, Carolyn shows off the completed scarf; it's very warm, very thick and absolutely gorgeous.

NCAG Specialty by Judge Arie

Carol's annual backyard show and potluck lunch is the most anticipated fun show.   It's relaxing and informal and believe it or not, there are 5 judges present.    English Angora goes on the judge Arie's table first thing in the morning while the Jersey Wooly and the American Fuzzy Lop are on different tables.

The English Angora colored senior doe is very impressive.

Casey's two Satin Angora littermates have been winning BOB and BOS in all shows big and small.   Even in the photo, the doe's sheen is very obvious.

Judge Arie is handling a very handsome French Angora pearl junior buck.

There are more French Angora colored senior does in the class than the judging coops can hold.

On the table are the two French Angora senior does plus some of the colored French Angora.

Laurie is watching judge Arie handling a French Angora colored senior doe.
