No Name

Well, at long last I've finished my fingering weight alpaca cardi. Five balls of Helen Hamann's Luxury Superfine Alpaca knitted at about 5.5 sts per inch on 4 mm needles. Seamless (like all my designs), top down, and feather light. I washed it at dinner time yesterday and it was mostly dry this morning. I'm going to wear it to the thrummed knitting class at Wool Tyme this afternoon. No name for it yet, but here's what it looks like.

Makes me feel as if spring might be on its way, even though it's cloudy with flurries and miserably Februaryish.
