Blue Sky Alpacas - Bulky Naturals

I'm nearly finished with something I wanted to try knitting with this:

It's as soft as it looks. Blue Sky Alpacas is one of my favorite yarn companies and everything of theirs that I've knit with has been consistently wonderful.

Though this accessory might be somewhat impractical, that was part of the appeal for me. I wanted something simple and unfussy to show off the stitches. And . . . even if it turns out horrible, I'll still share the finished product when it's seamed and dry.

I also picked up some gorgeous Malabrigo worsted weight yarn to knit some fingerless mitts:

It's a great way to test-drive a yarn for a future sweater -- I love the yarn and I love the color and it's soft enough to be worn next to the skin.

Both yarns look wonderful! I just got some Malabrigo laceweight (you are an enabler in this!), and it is wonderfully soft.

Both yarns are just gorgeous. I'll be interested to see what sweater you use the malabrigo for. I have enough for a sweater in my stash & I can never find the perfect pattern.

Yes I love test driving as well!!

You have exquisite taste my friend.

Very pretty yarns! I just bought some Misti Alpaca Chunky. It's so soft and cloudlike, and such a great choice for hot summer knitting. ;)

Can't wait to see what has become of the Blue Sky...
Test driving....I love that....especially since my hubby calls my fingerless mitts my driving gloves! You are clever! :)

Yum - I love Blue Sky!

Oh that looks delish. Makes me want to go get some.
