Today sees our heroine moving on to the next orphan project.

WHAT? You say? There's more? Ummm, yes, I am ashamed to say. I start all sorts of things and then get side tracked but I am determined to rectify this situation. One project at a time.

This project is from last winter. I was knitting fingerless mittens for myself and The Knight says "Hey, could you knit a pair for me?" and I says "Sure Sweetie. I can knit a pair for you!". I even have on hand this loverly tan, baby alpaca yarn I bought at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It is so soft! It is so cuddly! The Knight says, "Um ok, whatever you want to make them from is fine with me".

(He secretly thinks I am nuts but loves me anyway.)

Here is where they are today-

Hooray for working on orphans! Hope they turn out wonderfully. The yarn looks totally yummy.

It is! So soft, so fuzzy...oh sorry.

And the project is a small one, which is why I have no idea why it didn't get completed 8 months ago.

I don't call them orphans, I call them UFO's. UnFinished Objects. I have tons of them, but only one knitting project. Dark colored, fine yarn with a complex pattern that is difficult to see. A daytime project and only with magnification, even then.

I love alpaca. I like to blend it with other yarns to give it strength. By itself, it does not wear well, pilling, linting, shrinking and falling apart quickly.

This yarn may be a mohair mix but I can't be sure. The lable is long gone. It's pretty fluffy for just alpaca.

I'm not very good at keeping track of the labels, only a general idea of the fiber content.
