The farm I received my Alpaca fleece from, Tranquil Lane Farms, had some yarn mill spun. As soon as I saw the beautiful, squishy hanks I had to order some! I have a new found love and appreciation for all things Alpaca. When it arrived and I felt how soft they were I knew exactly what I was going to do with them.
What I love about this pattern: It's easy, it's quick, it's adjustable, and it's so warm and stretchy. Though not a groundbreaking, exciting design, I think this would make a nice fair/booth item. One works up in about an hour, and looks great on. If you'd like a PDF of the pattern that fits on 2 easy to print sheets you can snag it on Ravelry for $1. Purchasing the PDF is a great way to support the blog :)
