The alpaca experiment is underway. I knitted this cowl out of the yarn I bought the other day using a pattern I used previously for a Christmas present. It knitted up beautifully and is finished just in time for the temperatures to plunge again on Monday!
And then to finish the yarn, I crocheted this quick and easy hat:
Somehow it looks purple in this light, but it's really the same blue as the cowl!!
Now we wait to see whether or not I'm allergic to alpaca ..... shouldn't take long to find out!
