FO Alpaca Scrunchable
I made this with doubled varigated tan/off white alpaca with an occasional mix of off white thrown in for variety. It's very soft and substantial--it'll be very warm. It's for 'other grandma'

It's Kelly's scrunchable pattern, k2, p1 on both sides with a selvedge at each end. Pretty quick!

Thanks! I'd be tempted to keep it, but her birthday was yesterday.

Mindee--I'll make you one when you come and get 5-year-old Ryan every Sunday and keep him all day, and occasionally overnight. A small price to pay, in my opinion.

Thanks! I know it's not technically YOUR pattern, but I wouldn't have given it a second glance if you hadn't touted it and given us such a good close up of the stitch pattern.

After the cat zoomed in on it, I realized that the colors are actually the best I could have done for the recipient. She has four cats, and three of them match the scarf. It'll look like mohair in no time!!
