I heart alpaca

I absolutely love alpaca yarn and am so happy to have happened upon this blog / knit along!

I just finished this Misti Chunky Ribs & Ruffles scarf...


And currently have this "shaped scarf" on the needles, using an absolutely wonderful, native, natural color alpaca that I purchased at my LYS, A Knitter's Garden.


Looking forward to being a part of this great group!

My Alpaca Project

I've finally thought of the perfect project for me to do for the Alpaca KAL. I met up with a group of local knitters at Starbucks last night and they are doing a KAL of sorts. The pattern is Branching Out by Susan Pierce Lawrence on I have yarn left from first attempt at Ms. Marigold and wasn't sure what to do with it....this is fabulous. Plus - I think I can take a mini-break from Rusted Root for an hour or so tonight and cast on. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, here's a pic of my cat Hannah sleeping with my soon-to-be new lace scarf!
