meet mr alpaca
I finished the kool aid clapotis. There's not much I can say new about that. It's a wicked pattern. It was fun. It was addictive. It looks great. Knitting up, I could see how uneven the skiens I dyed were, but the clapotis can cope with a bit of striping, so it looks fine.
I've started Hedera which is fantastic. It's not pomatomus but (a) what is, and (b) it's much easier. It has the same twisted rib for definition and stretchyness. All very yummy. I'm using dpns as I've set myself the challenge of a whole pair of socks without bringing out the magic loop.
I've also started a baby cardi, haiku for a friend who's third is on the way in June. The yarn is some Red Heart a friend brought back from Florida for me because I was curious about what all the Amerincan blogs were bitching about. She's away travelling the world at the moment (last spotted, India) so won't be there for the baby's birth, I thought using her yarn would make it a gift from the two of us.
And because my boyfriend took me to the zoo and I met a cute alpaca, we have a shot of it too.
