My Free Patterns

Thursday, September 22, 2011


Confession time..........even with all my alpaca loving blog friends, I have yet to knit with alpalca wool.  That is, until now!  As a sort of hobby/compulsion I like to scan Ebay now and then for clearance wool, and last year some time I bought a ball of 100% alpalaca to try.  I like to buy things like this on Ebay because if I end up not liking them, well, I haven't lost much money in the process.

So I've cast on another hat, in my ongoing attempt to make a hat for myself for this winter.  My daughter wasn't feeling well yesterday so after school we all lined up on the couch and watched Tangled.  I think this is my favorite Disney movie thus far.  It might help that Zachary Levi is in it (he's Chuck!!).  I started this hat:

Sorry about my really poor photography skills, I was in a hurry to get this post up.

As for reading--I am as addicted to that as I am to knitting.  I am currently reading Rebecca, and I just got the best gift ever, a Kindle.  I was dead set against Kindles for ages, but the newest ones that have the pearl ink technology are just like reading a book.  Now I am hooked.  Only, that doesn't photograph well does it?

  1. <3 <3 Rebecca! =D

    I managed to get a picture of my book cover on the nook last week. As long as you have the light hitting it, it should work with a kindle, too.

  2. So, what do you think of the alpaca?! I love it, my favourite is alpaca with silk, softness personified ;)

  3. It looks like its going to be a cute pattern! Well, I also have to ask, how do you like the alpaca yarn? (Hopefully it's good quality, if so I know you're bound to love it!)

  4. Hi! Your knitting looks beautiful! I would love to try alpaca, too! Reading and knitting - what could be better!
    Thank you for your visit and comment!

  5. I am really liking the alpaca so far. It seems a bit more....hairy than wool, but in a nice way. I can't wait to get it on my head and see how it feels :) Alpaca and silk sounds divine, I've not knit with silk either, but I'll get there!!

  6. Love tangled, love alpaca and love your yarn colour so lots of love for this post.


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
