I am really making progress on this alpaca sweater. I am definitely going to have it ready by next fall, no problem. I had a few breaks in knitting as I was uncertain of the colors. I think I am happy with using the ones the pattern recommends after trying a few other color options.
You see 3 of the five colors in this shot. There is also a light yellow and a light purple. Now I have my eyes out for a new project. Maybe a hat for Lilly as the one she has worn the past two winters no longer covers her ears... (what a lousy mother!) She actually has a number of hats made my me that fit her to a T, but being Lilly she just wants the really PRETTY one. I can't blame her.
I have to tell you what a lovely week I am having now that everyone is absolutely healthy! Today I even had a babysitter in the afternoon so I could do a bit of sewing. She brought the kids to the farm in the rain. The kids came home wet and a bit chilly on their hands but they said they had a great time.
I am doing a shop update today! I am trying to make them in new colors. Which is your favorite color? If anyone has any color or fabric suggestions I am all ears.
