Warm summer day.....

Today was a visit to the Alpaca Farm for Miss "P" and I. These guys are so cute.
From this..... to this......
The reason for the visit was to drop of Leslie's new sweater. My own design, top down raglan with a stag horn cable and side vents. 100% Alpaca and it took approximately 1250 yds of light worsted weight. I'm in the process of writing the pattern out, but this one was a learning process for me and there are a few things I need to tweak. But all in all I'm pretty happy with it. And there are still a couple of skeins left to make some socks.

And yes, that is a pair of Fetching to go with it.P.S.: Thank-you to my model. (it was pretty warm out to be wearing a sweater)

Now I'm working on a cardigan for Julie for the Knitter's Fair. Pictures soon.
