Hurray! At long last I’ve conquered my fear of double-pointed needles. I can’t say what I’m making, in case the recipients tune in before Christmas, but I promise photos afterward. Oh, and for the record, Cascade Pastaza 50% llama, 50% wool yarn is quite nice to work with. Tomorrow (well, after a little sleep, because technically, it’s already tomorrow) I will be making another gift, this one with the persimmon-colored 80% alpaca, 20% merino I bought at Quarry Ridge in NY this October. Looking forward to tweaking this pattern for the next go-round!
