(mostly for my own benefit since I get sidetracked too easily)
I got these awesome fibery goodies from this super duper overly generous gal.
She spoiled me beyond my wildest dreams!
The smaller bag of fiber is 4 oz. of Suri Alpaca and the larger bag is 4 oz. of Llama. I've been spinning the llama and loving every minute! It's soooooooo soft!! I'm aiming for a sport weight that I can knit up with some alpaca for a cardigan. Which cardigan? I'm not sure yet but have a few in mind.

Here's my progress on the Minimalist cardi -- pattern from IK Fall 2007. Finished the back and working on the right front. Even though the picture looks pinkish, the colour is actually very red.

After I frogged the Bayerische, I started these Austrian Diamonds with the apricot Palette. It's going a lot better this time, thank goodness!

This will be ...... another project I just had to start. What kind of knitter would I be if I didn't have at least 4 wips, hah!

My Fensterl sock. I still haven't knit the mate so this is my 4th wip.
If anyone is interested in these socks, the pattern is available FREE by sending an email to me: electra_nina at yahoo dot com :)
