Yarnie Goodness!

This is the yummy yarn James had me order for my Valentine's....its so scrumptious...Berroco Ultra Alpaca in Lavender mix colorway. I'm going to crochet a wrap with it. Can't wait to start it, might pull out the ol' winder and swift today! Need to get some more chemo hats done though so we'll see. Plus I need to finish the shrug and sock I'm working on, but hey, those are knit and this is crochet...gotta have something on the hook huh?:)

I ordered this last week too. I couldn't resist it when I saw that sunflower! Ya'll know I love sunflowers! I've never done intarsia before so this kind of frightens me. One good thing is if I mess up too bad, the bag is felted so little mistakes won't show up!:) Do have to learn to knit with both hands though for the color work...hmmm. Thank goodness for youtube videos!

I like that color so much I want it too, not that I know how to do anything with yarn - but it looks so cozy.

Hope you're feeling better (as I read your next post too). That yarn is super pretty, and love my alpaca - so soft! :)
Good luck with the intarsia. I've never attempted it. YET.....
