So, I finally settled on a project to follow my knitted snake success. It's the Fuzzy Capelet from Speed Knitting by Kris Percival. I went to the yarn shop last weekend to buy yarn and to finally book my knitting lesson (that I've been talking about forever but only just now got around to scheduling). The pattern calls for acrylic "fun fur" yarn, which of course they don't sell at a yarn shop and I wanted to work with a natural fiber anyway, so the lady at the shop led me to this chunky baby alpaca yarn. I know nothing about yarn fibers but this feels fantastic. My capelet won't be fuzzy like in the picture, but it will feel like a cloud. And how awesome is it to be knitting a garment for myself? I'm just so excited.
