Finishing off took a bit longer than I anticipated, but the alpaca scarf is finished now. The colours are really beautiful- the light in this photo doesn't really do them justice at all.
So eldest daughter is proudly wearing them, and I'm now started on a set for younger daughter, with son waiting in the wings for his scarf. This knitting is addictive, I may not have time for blogging now!!
I enjoyed knitting the scarf so much, and had some yarn left, so I made matching mittens
I had completely forgotten how to use double-pointed needles, and how to make a thumb, but it all came back very quickly. I decided to do a deep cuff to make them really cosy.
by a friend who used to live there.
I'd say it has lived in my attic for about 16 years!
I wondered if it would still be available, and I went on Google to see- it is!
This is probably bad news for me, cos I'm fairly sure I'll be on that site buying up more.
Anyway, here's the link to the site, just click on either of the yarn pictures here.
