Newest projects on and off the needles!

Here are some of my latest projects. The little caplet is a dream to wear over your shoulders. It just meets the top of your elbow, so it is not in the way and can be worn with ease to work in, have dinner or wear over the top of your winter coat. Its easy to knit on large needles and works up fast. Pattern will be available to share with the purchase of yarn..
The next project on the needles is a blend of alpaca and Babydoll wool, Its my favorite blend of the year. I had many pounds of it processed so I will be dyeing some as I spin it. The blend is wonderful. Blended from Al the alpaca and Willow the Babydoll sheep. The pattern is a mock cable which I love doing, no cable needle to loose! I'm enjoying this 4 row pattern. Pattern will also be available in the shop. The fawn color yarn on the needles is our fawn or oatmeal mill alpaca yarn. Im doing a wide ribbed pattern and plan to knit it extra long for a shoulder shawl. I think the ribbing will hug around my shoulders and drape nicely. I saw this type shawl on a TV fashion show! That it was inspired me. Its been a wonderful fall Sunday here. We had a few wonderful customers stop on by, chatted some and off they went. It was a great day for a fall ride.
Thanks for stopping by. See you soon, have a great week!

Here are some of the ways our alpaca shawl/scarf can be worn. I love these! I wore it a few times out already and have had many a comment on it. I think be the end of the season this may be worn out!

Pretty! Caplets and very large neckwarmers are a favorite quick project of mine.
