Not the best photo, but at last, the cowl I knitted from the llama farm wool I picked up a year ago. It's a lovely basketweave pattern and the yarn is dual-colored, brown and off-white, handspun and very soft. As I was knitting, at times I still had to pick out tiny pieces of dried hay from the fibers! This only added to the charm. Natural fibers ROCK!
I have one more batch of llama yarn to knit up. Here is a picture of "All My Love," the llama it came from.
The yarn is a creamy white that has been handspun with a silver thread throughout. I'm debating whether it should be a shawl or a scarf.
Finally, here is a sneak peak of a new toy (the pattern, that is) that will soon hit my Etsy store. Stay tuned!
