Misti Alpaca
I was at my LYS on Sunday....with a preset list of items I HAD to buy when I came across this lovely yarn!!! OH MY WORD it is sooooo soft. There was a beautiful cabled scarf on display in this olive green color. If I didn't already have $75 worth of stuff in my arms I would've picked some up.

What have you made with it?

I made a scarf for my sister, who is very wool-sensitive. It's soooo yummy! :D

I made some mittens for my daughter and I will be making some socks for my grandfather with red and white striped stuff.

I've used the chunky - I've made two scarves (same pattern) and it truly is dreamy and great to knit with!

Isn't it marvelous? I'm making the Irish hiking scarf with it for my mom. She won't know its wool either until she falls in love with it!!! Sneeky, huh?

I LOVE that stuff! I made a sweater out of it and it is really warm. I want to hug myself all day when I wear it! BUY IT!! It is totally worth the cost.

My friend *just* brought me 1 big hank of this. What should I do with it? Just a garter stitch scarf? I've never actually made just a garter stitch scarf.
