Bulky Alpaca Hat, Scarf & Armwarmer Set
Yay! Alert the media! I finally finished something!


I made the hat back when I was in the mountains last Fall. And I really wanted a scarf to go with it to make the set complete.

The yarn came from a "Nicky Knits" kit I bought in the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby. Originally, the kit cost about 50 dollars, but I got it on sale for about 12.

Lots of bulky ALPACA yarn was inside the kit. Way cool!

So, here is the set I made. So soft and warm. Love it!

Thanks!

Now, I'm making a couple wristwarmers with the same yarn. I'm also thinking of making ankle warmers as well.

You're always doing charity KAL's, what do you mean that you finally finished something?

I know what you mean about 'finally making something for yourself'.. I noticed when I was putting photos in ravelry.. that almost everything that I had made last year was knitted for others.. (and I didn't even take photos of everything that I knitted)

My goal this year.. 'make more items' for myself. HOWEVER, I have already knitted a few things (for others) since 2008 .. oh, yes, I do remember one item that I knitted for myself- a small knitted Christmas ornament. At least.. it's a start!


I am going to try to do better.. and I am currently working on a simple scarf for myself.


I think it will look great to have all sorts of winter gear out of the same yarn.. that way, you can wear as much as you need/want.
