Yarn Along

I have had my hands full giving knitting lessons lately.  But I have snuck in a little of my own knitting on the side.  I am still working on my Aidez sweater. I am making it out of Eco Baby Yarn it is 100% baby alpaca.  It is a natural alpaca yarn that is undyed.  It is such a rewarding pattern. It doesn't take much concentration to make this sweater and I can keep most of the pattern in my head which is always a plus. I have the back panel and the front left panel done.



I also made a Simple Skyp Sock out of the Eco Baby Alpaca yarn. One of my students wanted to make a sock, so I had to freshen up my sock making skills.  I do like this sock. Now I just have to make a second to match. 

I am joining along with Ginny from Small Things


Also be sure to check out our farm's Blog with Leanne's post.  I will be at the farm (Arrow Acres Farm) today from 10:00 - 6:00.  If you are in the area swing by and meet the alpacas!
