I had big plans for January. It was going to be the month when I finished all the old sweaters that had been lying around unfinished for (literally) years.
But, then I bought the Blue Sky Alpaca and Silk. And, I fell in love. I would keep it in on the couch next to me and pet it. I simply had to knit with it. I remembered that I knit for fun! If I want to knit with my new yarn, that's just what I should do.
I was inspired by my friend Laura's Shetland Triangle Shawl to knit the exact same pattern in the exact same yarn. Real original! At least I picked a different color.
Pattern: Shetland Triangle from Wrap Style
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpaca and Silk Color I28
Needles: size 6
Here are some shots of me wearing it.
Look at my new handknit gloves.
But, they weren't handknit by me. I got them at Revive on Lee Road. They are a fair trade clothing store that opened recently. If you are in the Cleveland area, I highly recommend that you check them out. I also got a cute necklace there.
