Can I say my reading at the moment is a pattern book?!
When I saw the post about this book on Natural Suburbia, I was in love! And now it has arrived, it is just as gorgeous as I expected it to be.
As we are currently moving house, there is no knitting being done (sad face!). But as soon as we are settled and I rediscover my stash, the Cape Point Shawl will be jumping onto my needles.
Just the colours I love!
On my needles at the moment is another vintage baby pattern called This Lacy Raglan.
The lace pattern looks terrible at the moment - it is one that definitely requires blocking to show it to best advantage. I am knitting it in Drops Alpaca 4 ply. I bought some recently as the price is fantastic, as is the colour range. I must admit, though, to being disappointed at the way it is knitting up. My stocking stitch is normally quite even, but not this piece. And I cannot leave it for more than a day or there will be a definite tension mark. You can see it towards the top of this photo.
I'm hoping blocking will sort it all out.
Has anyone used Drops Alpaca? How do you think it performed?
