I feel like I haven't taken pictures of the alpacas lately. So today at the farm I brought my camera out of hibernation and took a few shots. Actually I took over 250 pictures :) So you can expect to see some upcoming posts staring the herd. I picked just a few for this post.
Don't you just want to cuddle with them! I love those fuzzy faces.
As for knitting I have been working on my Postcard Cardigan. I have been making up the pattern as I go. I am not sure if I am going to be publishing the pattern. I think I am just going to wear it and enjoy it for myself. Unless enough people show interest in it (then it might be worth my time putting it all together on paper). I am making it out of Brooklyn Tweed Loft yarn. I am in love with the loft yarn. But I think I might be allergic to it. I have been sneezing the entire time I've been working on it. I am so sad because I love this yarn so much.
I designed this cardigan to have two lace panels that run up the front and then down the back. I added shaping on the sides. I also added shaping on the back that gives the look of a razor back. I like razor backs and thought it would be fun to try on a lace cardigan to give it some Jazz.
I think this pattern would work great as a vest or a cardigan, so I wanted to get some pictures of it without the second sleeve. I'm still trying to decide what pattern I am going to do for the cuff so I left the right one unfinished.
So that is what I've been knitting. We are expecting some more bad weather. I am not sure if we are going to get a lot of snow or rain. Either way hopefully it will keep me home long enough to get this cardigan finished up. I can't wait to wear it. Even if I have to take allergy medicine when I have to wear it. I know it will be worth it :)
