alpaca and merino love
first, thanks for the help with the dresden quilt question. i've decided to hand stitch. i hope to get to the first top later this week. there is a quiet house here, and i'm looking for some ways to keep busy. the first quilt will fill that time perfectly.
i finished this easy sweater. the details are here. i highly recommend this alpaca/merino blend by cascade yarns. it is a great weight, very soft and so comfortable to wear.
i am not sure how much i like the striping in this yoke style pattern. things tend to lead the eye to lower and lower circles, if you know what i mean. but other than that, the color is yummy and i can see my self wearing this all the time as that extra light layer.
up next on my needles is another candide cardigan. i ordered some yarn from bartlett yarns. i'm going to add some edging details to this one once the body is complete.
stay warm, friends.
