All things considered, I am making great strides to complete my knitting bucket list for the year. I’ve finished the last of my 2015 projects, and my Waterlily tee even double counts as a tunic. (It came out a bit long, so I’ve been wearing it with leggings.) I dabbled in colorwork and even managed to finish my beginner project, although I still want to give Fair Isle a whirl. We’ll see. I’ve knit one sweater from Home & Away*, and I am determined to knit at least one more this year.
Progress, people. Progress.
Next up: the poncho. The yarn has been purchased (four skeins of 100% alpaca Puna Amano sportweight in misty grey, I believe). I almost wish I had a worsted weight and perhaps a darker shade of grey, but this will do just fine. One can’t always expect a LYS be stocked with absolutely everything. Sometimes a knitter must be flexible and leave a bit up to fate AKA The Yarn Gods.
The Amano has knit up quite well, as scrumptiously soft yarns tend to do. Swatched. Pinned. Dried. Not curling. Generally behaving. The future is bright.
I wonder if the neighborhood alpacas will be offended or flattered when I wear it to give them their daily treats this later this fall.
