They look great! Don't you love alpaca? I have a "thing" for it too. Just so soft and wonderful. I love that colour too.

Most of my charity knitting has been just knitting a PORTION of something, so it doesn't feel like I ever finish anything. I've started 7 Oddball Blankets, 2 Oddball Lapghans, 2 Oddball Shawls, and 12 Oddball Baby Blankets. They are all sent off to be completed by other knitters. So, it kinda feels like sending my children out into the world.

Exactly!

Alpaca is a little bit of heaven.

I love the yarn...color and soft sheen...as well as the simplicity of the patterns! Way to go Sandy!
