Layering shrug

I also managed to complete a Layering shrug. I followed the pattern and made it in BC Allino.
Great pattern and an interesting model.

Caramel cardigan

It took me 3! months to bind all the threads but now it's completed.
My Caramel cardigan was started over new year on Teneriffe and I know that I completed all the knitting during Q1 (I thought it was a too easy project for UFO in Q2 - no knitting and not yet at "real" UFO).
The yarn is Alpaca Silk from Blue Sky Alpacas.

I was only going to buy....

...some vacation reading. Click, click and these ended up at home.Lucky me!
I already had the patterns for "Fritt etter.." but the book is so inspireing, many beautiful pictures and I'm starting to plan for another project.  Cast-on Bind-off is hopefully a good handbook.
