Everywhere I go I am surrounded by puppies. Do you think someone, somewhere is trying to tell me something? ;) Better than babies I reckon..
And it's done! It was a super fast fun knit this one, all alpaca, all the time. Top down (why do I even bother to say that now? WHY?) hip length cardigan. Very fitted, with eyelet increases. I have to say this was a titch hairy, but I gave it a wash and pushed some hair conditioner through it now its snuggle city. The colour is truer in the shots below.
Thanks be to work and the mannequin/light. I'd never get this done with it. Speaking of work.. OMG. Today I went a bit bonkers and bought another sweaters worth of this:
But in a more khaki green colour (10). It has the most fantastic hand, soft and luscious. And the shine, did I mention the shine? As I was pricing this to put out I just kept thinking, "Hello there my next sweater!" and before I knew it was in my knitting bag whispering promises of gorgeousness. I am a whimpering pile of something when it comes to silk. Oh yes. This will go fast, mark my words.
Which reminds me.. I have a whack of silk coming from Hip Knits. Kerrie was kind enough to dye me some aran weight in the colourway Kiss. Pink you know. Like almost everything lately. But I do love my pink. Its in the post as I type and I cannot wait to get my frantic little paws on it. SILK!
We are venturing out west next month and I am in the possession of a GC to one of the Islands Treasures, Mad About Ewe. I am all aquiver at the possibilities!
