Manos del Uraguay kettle dyed wool, in a dusty plum/violet color. The pattern I bought is a vest-like shrug. I am looking forward to casting on with this and getting to work on it. I think it will be just the ticket to keep my warm this winter.
This is something I have been working on for a little while...I think I cast on the first time in East Tawas at The Harbor Star. I've knitted, ripped, re-knitted and discovered at one point that I had made 2 right hands and ripped again. I got the yarn at Skeins on Main in Rochester, Mi. I've made a few changes in the pattern to make the cuff longer.
Lastly, I picked up some chunky Misty Alpaca to make a gift with...it is the softest, dreamiest yarn I have ever fondled. Here's a peek at it: I know you want to touch it.......and you can. If you are the lucky recipient. If you are not, I got mine at Crafty Lady Trio in Macomb, Mi. They have more.
You chicks have a great day. Hope you are getting alot done and having fun doing it. TTYL!
