I hope I have better luck. I am crocheting a vest using a pattern from the Crochet Guild magazine out of alpaca. I am double stranding it. So far other than not using post stitches in the body and using a spike stitch the vest is doing well. The alpaca is so soft. The pattern called for worsted weight. Even though the place where I got the yarn said it was worsted weight, it did seem thin so I double stranded it.
I am so sorry! I enjoy your posts so much and have been wondering where you have been lately! Apparently, you've been sitting shiva for your vest!
I have been wanting to work with alpaca for so long after touching some at a LYS but your vest story is scaring me off!!! I hope the hat turns out well. What else are you going to make? You must have tons of yarn leftover!
Late at night, when the family's all asleep,
you will find me counting stitches
instead of counting sheep!
