|Keyla with Willow|
It was donated by her about the time we were just dipping our toes into the idea of raising alpacas and spun by a friend of our first alpaca-farming-mentors.
I thought it was the most beautiful yarn I'd ever seen and had dreams of making an Irish Fisherman's Sweater out of it. Of course I had no idea then that there was no where near enough yarn for a sweater. :-/
It has sat mostly quiet in my stash since then.
I decided a simple London Beanie would show off the character of the yarn best and give me the fit I wanted.
I've made this pattern so many times that I can almost do it in my sleep... exactly the sort of pattern I need right now.
I must say, it feels good to have been hit with a little inspiration and to be able to act on it. :-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
