i have been feeding my addiction lately...

first, from a recent trip to woodstock, ny:

the photos don't do the colors justice - the left is a pale, robin's egg blue, the right, a rich, deep burgandy - i loved the two colors together, and fully intend on knitting them into some beautiful scarf.
this is an enormous skein of undyed, 100% baby alpaca - it is simply gorgeous to behold, and if i could make a big nest and sleep in it, i would.

some recent purchases from my lys, the cornwall yarn shop:

cascade 100% baby alpaca, chunky - all blue yarn was 20% off for the month of may...what can i say? i'm a sucker for a sale.
again with the baby alpaca...i posted once before i had an alpaca problem...it hasn't gotten any better.

guess what fiber these yarns are...? i loved the purple yarn, it has tiny flecks of glitter in it. i have no idea what i'll do with it, but i needed to have it.

and my latest purchase, which just came in the mail today...
this is my first multi-colored yarn, i think, besides sugar and cream cotton yarn. it is, of course, baby alpaca, and i think i might do some armwarmers with it...

i love the purple yarn, too...i just don't know what to do with it! any sport-weight patterns requiring approximately 200y of yarn would be greatly appreciated...
