This is getting fancier! I know one of you wants this luxurious natural-color 100% alpaca from Cascade. It pains me to part with it, and truly I wouldn't if it were my only skein. Thank goodness, I have more. This is so soft you won't believe it. I knit a Lauren with it and whenever I wear it, I'm constantly hugging myself! Self-love, or alpaca love? You decide.

Comment. Click. Knit. Them's the steps.

Also, folks, don't let me down by getting through all the steps and then not giving me a place to send the yarn. Pure frustration. I'm not trolling for addresses, here. I've got enough to do without that. I just want to share some stash and celebrate my new venture. Just play nice, okay?

Progress: I did get the yard cut and the beds a little tidy. I did get the sock designs fleshed out. I got the yarn order completed. I did not get the test sent, but will today. I have two more pattern reps and the cuff to do on the sock--surely I'll get that done today. We did get the new Figheadh released! Have a look. I'll tell you more about those next week.
Have a great day everyone!

Aw, stop, Mom, you're embarrassing me!!! (No, really, thanks.)And congrats go to Natalie, who did the photography. No small feat trying to get a picture of me without my making a stupid face, right Emily?

Thanks Betsy! So glad you like!

I want this yarn! First of all, I want you to know I'm out there. Second of all, I love the eco wool and haven't tried the alpaca. I just bought the headband and my ravelry name is piecesofstring. Find me at lapekny[at]sbcglobal[dot]net.
