I have a friend whose first baby girl was born on July 4th of this year, I have been working on a sweater for her. I used the softest yarn I have ever felt, it is made by Plymouth Yarn.
It is Baby Alpaca Worsted Paint, total luxury and can be purchased through WEBS online.
You must check out the Webs site, you will find the most amazing deals on yarns, as well as patterns for knitting and crocheting.
This sweater is such an easy pattern as it has NO seaming...yeah! It is an easy knit item and I can even knit on it at my group without having to go home and tear out mistakes made due to my chatting with my friends. : ) The cable is so easy and really is lovely when it is completed.
I think I am going to try to modify this pattern for an adult size. I really love the yarn and the pattern of this sweater.
More to come soon when I am finished with this item.
