It feels so good to finally be knitting on this cardigan. Look at the progress! In about the same amount of time it took to knit these little booties, I've worked through one of skein of yarn and have completed the yoke. The yarn I'm using is Berroco Ultra Alpaca (50% Alpaca, 50% Wool). Very soft and nice to work with.
As promised, here's what I bought at The Yarn Garden Knit Shop in Lawrenceville, Georgia:
Two hanks of 2nd Time Cotton, a recycled fiber that is 75% cotton, 25% acrylic. The best part was that it was on sale for 60% off. Great deal!
I couldn't resist this lovely blue color (#77) of Trekking XXL. One of the ladies in the shop is using it for a pair of socks and she said it knits into a very subtle striping pattern
This is my favorite purchase. A hand turned nostepinde made by Thomas Smith of Milledgeville, Georgia. I now own three hand crafted nostepindes. A collection is born.
