Well, gentle reader, I am here to tell you that bulky yarn is not a quick knit when there is a lot of seed stitching to be accomplished.
As you can see, I am still two sleeves short of a jacket.
But summer is coming quickly here in soCal. And it has arrived down in the desert where I spend a lot of time. Guess how hot it is when your lap is filled with bulky alpaca? Go ahead. Guess?
This is Misty Alpaca. It knits like a dream. It is warm enough for anything that southern California throws at me.
However. Alpaca sheds. A lot. On black. And it shows. It shows up a lot on black.
