I used a chunky knit pattern from Jo Sharp and modified.....added pockets and knit the sleeves from the top down.
The yarn was handspun 50% alpaca, 50% wool, 2 ply and knit on a 6.5mm needle.
It should have gone alot faster, but it didn't.
So now she wants another with a round neck-- one in her prize Alpaca-- "Condor". This handspun is 100% alpaca and much lighter and softer than the last blend.
So, Saturday was a road trip. I needed new moccasins, so we drove to Dorset (between Huntsville and Bracebridge, about 3 hours from home) to Robinson's General Store. What a selection, I couldn't decide which ones to get.Crazy, you say, to drive all that way just to get slippers, but this is what we like to do. And besides I got all this done....A new pullover for Miss "P". The back is blocked and the front almost done. Knit with Rowan All Seasons cotton. What a quick knit. Details to follow when finished.
Tonight is guild night and Maureen Mason-Jamieson is coming for a talk, should be a fun evening.
