While I'm sad that summer is drawing to a close around here, I'm getting excited to get back into knitting for the fall and winter. I've got two new prot√©g√©s to teach (Jon and my sister, Rachel), and I'm on the lookout for new things to try myself.
A few weeks ago I picked up 5 skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca with only
a vague idea of what I wanted to make. I've never gone into a yarn
store and bought anything on a whim before like this, so I was lucky to
find the perfect pattern for this yarn! I'm planning on making Olive's
afghan that's featured on the cover of knitalong
(zig zag afghan, bottom middle). It's actually made in the yarn that I
purchased, so I'm all set to go. I just got the book in the mail and
now I just need to wind these hanks into a ball.
