Today I bring you a blast from the stash! Here’s a leftover skein of Alpaca & Silk from Blue Sky Alpacas. Love this yarn, love that company! This skein and a tiny ball from another one have been marinating in my stash for the better part of a year, because the project from Naughty Needles didn’t fit too well, and I have yet to find the motivation to redo part of it.


Silk! I love your shine, your softness, the luxury of knitting with and wearing you. But why, O Why, must you stretch out so much when I knit you into fabric? We won’t mention the disaster that was the stepfather Christmas bowtie. I will continue to hold that against you and your fiberkind. However, I can’t deny your irresistable sheen, and deliciously inherent.. silkiness!
