This is Avocet B in Wool-Ease.
At the beginning of the year I had wanted something that was easy to pick up and just knit every row. This worked out well.
The fit is good, if a little longer than I expected. The garter stitch ate up yards and yards of yarn, but the wool-ease was economical. It should end up being a very functional piece.
These were made for a co-worker. Something for their new little one to grow into.
The pattern is Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Cutest Booties.
A quick knit, although I did need to make three to end up with two.
Leftover from a photo shoot, I am a very fortunate recipient of alpaca fiber. Three examples were provided. The first is a super super bulky with some extra twist.
My swatch used up the entire 55 yards.
If I can figure out a good backing and filling, it will used as a throw pillow.
The other two alpaca examples including roving and nearly 8 oz of locks. I’m hoping to spin the roving, even with my limited experience, into enough for a hat. I don’t have any carders, so I’ll have to consider the possibilities for processing the rest.
