Karen owns and boards alpacas at Highland Alpacas. They had a booth at the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival. I made a cardigan last year from Robyn Chachula's book Blueprint Crochet out of 100% alpaca yarn from Highland's apalcas. We all think it was a great combination of design and yarn, so it was on display in their booth.
Over time Karen has pretty much become Highland's yarn designer. She's been helping Fay and Jenny realize their goal of making the farm and yarn shop a destination stop. She's also been mining the talent at Three Rivers Crochet to offer interesting classes at the farm.
On April 17 I'll be teaching a class on motifs and international symbols in crochet. You can see two of the motifs that will be covered. For more classes keep an eye on their website or sign up for their newsletter.www.highlandalpaca.com
