just a quick post…wanted to show what i decided to make with my suri alpaca
pattern: fetching (knitty) in plymouth yarn suri merino (pumpkin)
50 g / 110 yds; 55% suri alpaca / 45% extra fine merino wool
needles: 5-#5 bamboo double pointed needles
alterations: used standard bo, the picot bo looked funky to me and curled too much for my liking.
i was a little worried that the tiny ball would not make a pair of these soft fingerless gloves. but i took out my trusty scale – only 19 grams for the first finished glove!! that leaves me a generous 29+ grams for the second. lovely!i was bummed to discover that i was off on my rows between cables, so they gradually get longer…but i don’t think it’s too noticeable, do you? (cough) um…that was my ‘design feature’ anyway (cough). right. can’t wait to get started on the rest of my gifts!
