I don’t usually do such posts but I do seem to have quite a bit on my needles at the moment.
Now, remember the silk/baby alpaca blend that I had to send back because the color wasn’t suitable? Guess what? The color is apparently OK after all. I thought it was a lovely color myself and couldn’t understand what the problem was. Turns out that it was a totally different color than what was pictured on J’s computer screen. So I began the Na Craga (from Alice Starmore’s Aran Knitting). I am once again in awe at her patterns as well as enjoying the soft silky smooth yarn. I do notice that there is a different feel about working with the baby alpaca, it is much less elastic than wool, it really doesn’t give. Hopefully the pattern will be ok anyhow.
Currently only a portion of the ribbing is done:
Finally, I have been rearranging in my home a bit. I have gone through my yarns again and tried to put them in some order that I can see them as well as get to them easily. I also wanted to make it so that I can get to all the associated accessories easily rather than have to dig under my bed. I tried to arrange so that there were separate sections for sweater yarn, sock yarn, lace yarn, etc. More work is to be done but this is a good start 🙂
