I have wanted to try a few new different types of yarn other than the usual wool and cotton I have been using lately.
When I had birthday money to spend in September I bought some wonderful Alpaca for a hat for myself and some Alpaca silk blend for a scarf for my friend. The hat is a wonderful cable pattern I especially like the view from the top it looks like a star. I finished this last week just in time for our very early snow. It was so nice to have a warm hat to wear in the morning. Now all that wonderful snow is melting and I am wishing it would snow again so I can continue to wear my hat without looking out of season.
The scarf for my friend was a scarf pattern she picked out from Knitting New Scarves.It was a bit of a challenge because it was a wedge and had to work short rows that I am not familiar with and she wanted it a bit longer and I had to do math (not my strong suit). I do think it turned out alright and she loved it so that is all that matters.
What kind of things are you working during all this cold weather?
