Last week I took a walk to Trassel and bought a really soft and thick alpaca yarn.
I'm thinking of making a scarf or a cowl inspired be the pattern on this book cover.
But then I want to start on the dress to N, and a hat for her and A and the green cardigan and all the other ideas and dreams I have ready to start working at.........

My Fair Isle capelet is now completed and blocked!
I like the colors and I'm glad I switched to larger needles so the size got right, at least in width. I'm not fully sure the length is OK, it might be loo long. If it's not raining I'll try it tomorrow with a 3 yaer old and a stroller - will I be able to move my arms enough?
I'm happy with the colors and also that it all came out of my stash!
I found 1 (actually 2) balls of Drops Delight and decided to make Eleanor. This time I think I blocked it too much and in combination with not changing to a smaller needles the last rows it turned out a bit too loose.
I like the pattern and I'm thinking of using it again with a thicker yarn for the winter.
It was also interesting to see the color combination, the contrast was bigger than I imagined.
I bought the yarn last year and did the knitting this summer (a fitted knit with a big belly was not my cup of tea). Then it ended up in a bag just waiting for the sewing parts.
The yarn is lovely and it was a fun project to knit.
