Introducing myself

Hello all,

I just joined this KAL and thought introductions were in order. I went back into the archives and found this intro questionaire and thought I'd start with that. So, here goes...

1. How did you find this KAL?
I was surfing the 'net and found the 2007 Knit Alongs and Swaps website. I saw this one there.

2. What do you plan on making with your Alpaca fiber? Crocheting, knitting, or spinning? If knitting or crocheting give us details on the yarn! I am currently working on the Spinner's Shawl by Fibertrends. It is my first shawl project and I have just barely started. It is being knit with Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Tide Pool, a lace weight yarn. After that, I have a sock of the month kit (from way too long ago...) that is called something like Celtic Cables. The yarn for it is Misti Alpaca lace weight in a medium kelly green. There might be an alpaca spinning project in the future, but I have too many UFOs right now to start something new.

3. Have you worked with Alpaca before? If so, your favorite past project knit with Alpaca? I have worked with alpaca once before. I knit a pair of socks with Knit Picks Andean Treasure. They are so soft. I love alpaca.

4. What is your absolute favorite Alpaca yarn? What weight do you prefer working with? I have only used these three different yarns. I like the medium weight yarns, sport weight, but apparently keep finding lace weight projects.

5. What sorts of things would you like to see this group do? Would you like any contests, prizes, surveys, swaps? Any of the above would be great.

Well, that's all for now. I just got off work, so I have chores to do. Looking forward to everyone and all the projects. Nice to meet you all.

Welcome to the KAL. I love Knitpicks Andean Treasure as well. I made a scarf for my dad and a pair of mittens. They are so soft and warm.
