As promised, I found some daylight hours to worship photograph the gifted alpaca yarn from my secret pal. Yes, I love how soft it is, but what I am really wild about is the heathered brown color. I adore the red and gold tones, and I’m glad it’s not just straight brown.. Knitpicks yarn can be too solid in some of their lines, but I…

I know I said that I’d take Wisp with me to dentist appointments and that it would be my therapeutic easy knitting, but I guess I needed lots of therapy because I finished it in four days. I would have shown it to you as early as Monday but it’s impossible to photograph! The yarn, Diane Sparkle from Australia, is such an unusual color, that…
