Yarn Along


I won some Sweet yarn! It is Silk Cashmere Aran hand dyed in Beautiful British Columbia from Sweet Fiber.  It is so soft I wish you could touch it.


You know it is some very impressive yarn when Harley Weimeraner has to come over to check it out.  Even a dog knows it is some awesome yarn.


I set a side my Plivver top to finish up another project. I can't wait to have this top done, but it is going to take a long time to make. No plain knitting on this project. Hopefully it will be ready in the Fall.


I am working as fast as I can to finish up my Shetland Triangle Shawl. I am doing it was a KAL and just about everyone has finished. I started late and I am finding it really hard to dedicate too much time to knitting these days. We've been out enjoying the warm weather and longer days. Not to mention those adorable baby alpacas Swag & Mr. Bates.  But this is such a nice knit to come home to and knit one repeat of the chart and go to bed.


I have also been processing some fiber. I want to have it done before Blue (my alpaca) gets sheared. so I can work on his as soon as it comes off him.




So that is what I have been working on.  Hopefully I'll have some FOs next week.

Lucky fish! How lovely to win yarn. I'm super impressed with all the projects you have on the go. I would love to try a Shetland Triangle one day but wonder if the lace work would be my undoing! LOL
