A good Mistake



There has not been much sunlight the past two days in the Chicago area. During a current downpour, I decided to try to take a post picture for today. I do love available light, and this shot does show the truest color of the Misti Alpaca. Soft? This stuff defines soft.

I was going to make a pocketed vest with a hood, with this yarn. It was an Oat Couture pattern. I'm froggin it. Stuff this soft should be next to skin, not anything else. I am thinking sleeveless turtleneck. Maybe.

The reason I frogged it: I forgot where I was in the pattern. Seems I started out knitting for one size yarn and picked up and knitted for another. Oh well. Must watch this in the future. Say use a pen or something? It is no bother at all to restart with this stuff. I could knit forever with this soft alpaca. Mmmmmmmm.
Happy Fall.

That does look like a good soft gray color, and makes me think of real comfort sweater-wearing. Does that make sense? I've had sweatshirts that I wore to death; something like this could be the same way.

I LOVE alpaca!

Yes, it should be next to the skin.

Misti Alpaca is so nice. It is produced or distributed in Illinois or Wisconsin. (I think)

Strange thing...I'm having a hard time finding it.

Enjoy knitting with it...you sure picked a nice color.
