I am knitting my first project ever using alpaca yarn. Sandnes Garn’s Mini Alpaca is super wash (machine washable) and hopefully well suited for baby clothes. Their factory outlet is only 20 minutes from my house so it’s easy to drop by when in need of yarn. Way too easy. And the bargain bins make it that much harder not to buy more than needed. This beautiful blue alpaca came 20 balls in the bag, a total of 1 kg, so I’ll be knitting lots of blue stuff through the winter.
I fell in love with Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Baby Surprise Jacket and Tomten Jacket on Ravelry and ordered the patterns from Schoolhouse Press.
My new knitting bag is a hemp tote bag from Heathrow. How could I not buy one of these?
