Yesterday while perusing the yarn at Prairie Yarns, I caresed my first skein of Misti Alpaca chunky yarn. Holy cow, it is soooo unbelievable soft and I wanted to curl up with it and cuddle. I now really want to buy some and make a super soft sweater with it and I absolutely would wear it all the time. Luckily I noticed all of this lushness after I paid for my yarn and was having my yarn wrapped into balls. At the last second I caught some lovely skeins of Misti Alpaca sock yarn out of the corner of my eye and wandered over for just a second. Wow, I just know that my next month’s project will be to acquire some Misti Alpaca yarn and knit myself up some socks.
For this month I have three projects in mind. Since my yarn from KnitPicks hasn’t arrived yet (it may come within the next couple of days), I will c/o with the yarn I bought yesterday! I bought some eco-friendly yarn in a heathered gray/brown color and in straight up cream. Prairie Yarn was nice enough to order me one more skein of the gray/brown and will ship it to my house when it comes in! The outline for my project is first to knit up a purse alternating the two colors and as far as decoration, I want to do 2 different cable patterns on both the front and back. I think I would love to do the Flirtation cable (from Vogueknitting.com) in the middle and then a 6st crossover cable on either side of the Flirtation cable. I’m really excited to get to work on it!
I picked the gray/brown color because I really liked the combination of it alternating with the cream color. I am also very fond of putting together something classic that will last; the colors aren’t too crazy and it will go with a variety of things. The heathered gray/brown color also reminds me of tweed 🙂
Today I plan on getting to work on that and we’ll see how far I get before my second skein arrives!
